Entrance via PMI
In the PAYONE Merchant Interface you can access the PAYONE link via the "Channels" section.
At this point you can decide whether you want to navigate to the dashboard of already created links, create a link or take a closer look at the documentation, then you will be directed to the page where you are currently located.
This is could also be called the landing page of the PAYONE link. Here you can see all your already created links and sort them by different parameters.
Via the displayed transaction number, which is located next to the reference of the link, you will be directed to the respective transaction in the accounts receivable management.
The following filters are available:
- Expiration and creation date
- Transaction number
- Transaction type
- Sub-account and portal
- Payment methods used
Using the bar on the left you can navigate to:
- Link overview
- Creation of links
The part where you currently are is highlighted in a dark blue.
Create a new link
In order to create a link, a form must be filled out, which operates the API in the background. Not all fields are mandatory.
|Reference||yes||timestamp||Merchants can change the reference, nevertheless it has to be unique|
|Expiration Date||no||10 days; if no date is set by merchant||Currently available up to 335 days. However a link will be deleted 30 days after expiration or execution due to data security|

You can also edit your prefered link design in this area. For that click on "edit design". A description for design follows further below.
In this area you can configure a shopping cart. Necessary information will be:

- Shopping Cart
Once you click on Add item a new window will open as can be seen below.
You don´t have to list every item, it is also possible to list one item as a placeholder for one order.
However it is necessary to list a product number.

As a result you will see a variety of payment methods, resulting from the combination of portal, sub account, currency and country.
Currently around 15 payment methods are available for PAYONE Link with more methods joining in the future.
- grey payment methods - those are preselected
- white payment methods - by clicking on a pre-chosen payment method you deselct it and it turns white, click on it again and it is selected and turns back grey

After selecting your favoured payment mix, you can create the link by clicking on "create".
If you entered all the necessary data simply click on "create". You will be forwarded to a detail page, where you can control the entered information before sending the link.
In this area you have the opportunity to check all details and send the link afterwards. Copy it and send it via social media, messenger or elsewhere.
On this page you also have the possibility to adapt the link again by clicking the button "edit" - this is possible until your customer has clicked the button "execute payment" in the link. For example you could change the design, which is shown as a previw In the right corner at the end of this page.
In addition, the PAYONE transaction number is displayed here as soon as the customer has clicked on "Execute payment". If you click on the transaction number, you will be taken to the accounts receivable management where you can see the current status of the payment.
Different seasons or locations call for different designs. Therefore we implemented a dedicated designs section. You can navigate to designs via the bar on the left.
Within this section you have the possibility to create and save up to 20 different designs. if you hover over one of the design panels you have four different options:
- The star next to the design title makes this your default design
- The trashcan allows you to delete design templates
- The pencil gives you the opportunity to edit the design
- The plus allows you to create a new link directly from this design
A new design can be created on the far right of this page via the button "create design"
If you want to edit an existing design or create a new one, this window will be shown. Here you can set the following parameters:
