Behind the feature — Payment pages
Exploring the Payment Pages feature
We’re starting a series on the blog where we’ll share the stories behind some of the features at Paystack. The beauty of having a product with over 6,000 signups is that you get to speak with so many people and that gives you a good idea of what people want. Every feature has a story, and today, we’ll reflect on how we built the payment page feature.
We spent the next few months getting feedback and monitoring usage. Sometime in August, we released an update. Today, the feature is growing fast and currently accounts for 5% of our transaction volume. Over 260 businesses have received payments using Payment pages and adoption continues to increase.
Here are some nifty things you can do with our Payment pages:
Collect all the information you need: Request addresses, date of birth, gender, basically any information you want to get from your customers.
Memorable payment pages: Use custom URLs to create pages your customers can remember. And yes, you can also update the URLs of your existing payment pages.
Payment pages with subscriptions: Your customers can subscribe for your recurring plans via payment pages.
Redirects and success messages: Redirect your customers somewhere else after a successful payment. Or just set a custom thank you message.
