Using FinDock PayLinks


FinDock PayLinks is a paid add-on feature. Please contact us to get started.

To find out more about FinDock PayLinks, please visit our website.

Once you have configured PayLinks, using payment links is very simple.

To use payment links, just:

  1. Copy the payment link from the installment Pay URL field.
  2. Share the payment link with the payer.
  3. After the payer completes the payment, successfully or unsuccessfully, FinDock automatically updates the installment in Salesforce.

The payment link can be shared through any online channel, e.g. email, SMS, messaging apps, etc. using Salesforce CRM out-of-the-box features and additional solutions like Pardot and Marketing Cloud.

A payment link is unique for a given installment and can only be used once for payment.

The payment link URL has three components:

  • Base URL (depending on type of org)
  • Hashed Salesforce Org ID
  • Installment GUID

For example:

  • Base URL: (sandbox org)
  • Hashed Salesforce Org ID: 1xyzzabcd2
  • Installment GUID: b3f1a221-1234-fc0c-e13f-abeee5b3509d

The payment link takes the payer to your PayLinks landing page. This page is populated with data from your PayLinks configuration and the installment:
