How long does a payment link stay active for?

If you’re a Virtual Terminal user, you can send a shopper a link to pay with

Our Virtual Terminal makes it possible to take payments without a card machine. You can send a shopper a link to follow and pay from wherever they are.

Payment links are valid for six months. If a shopper tries to pay but is unsuccessful, they have 15 minutes to retry, for example with a different payment method.

For more information, see our Virtual Terminal guides.
