Overview of Accepting Payments

Payment Frequency

There are 2 main ways to accept payments with Xfers.

1. Accept a one-time fixed amount for each transaction (i.e. One-Time Payment)

Use this method when you have a certain order to fulfil. You will typically already know who the customer is and how much they should pay. The payment is dynamic (i.e. one-off), where after the customer paid a transaction, no further payment for the transaction is accepted. You can fix the amount being paid by the customer.

Typical use cases are marketplaces, gig platforms and all kinds of e-commerce.

2. Accept multiple payments from each customer (i.e. Unlimited Payment)

Use this method when you require a static payment method that allows for multiple and new payments from the linked customer. Callback notifications will be fired to you when we detect payments made through the payment method. The customer will have the ability to decide the amount to be topped up.

These are typically used as a top-up channel to your platform's e-wallet or fund-holding account.
