Integration Overview

Clickatell Chat 2 Pay enables call center agents to send a payment request to their customers, sent in an SMS or WhatsApp message. The customer can pay for orders logged on Salesforce Order Management by simply clicking on the link delivered in the message without requiring them to expose their personal payment information to the call center agent by reading the payment card details out over the phone.

On clicking the link, the customer is served a hosted checkout page where they can securely enter their payment card details and submit payment. The checkout page is responsive and will reformat to display correctly on any screen or device. The customer receives a confirmation of their order and a receipt (also via chat message), while the Chat 2 Pay integration displays the status of the transaction to the call center agent (such as link sent, payment success, error or rejection, invoice sent, etc.).

This powerful integration performs all the orchestration required to securely pass information between the merchant and the customer via popular chat channels, enabling convenient, contactless payment experiences. Integration management tools enable easy configuration of the chat channel, the payment processor, and the message templates.
