Instore (SMS plus Email to customer)


This API call sends a text message and an email to the customer with a link to complete the purchase on their mobile device or laptop. The API also responds with a PayBright reference that can be used by your Store Representatives to get the status of Customer Application in order to capture the order.

Customers will click on a link in the SMS or Email which will open a simple PayBright application and guide your customer through the application process. Once the customer finishes the application you can use the PayBright reference to get the status before Capturing the transaction.
