You don’t need a website or a social media page to start selling online. If you have a product or service you want people to pay for, how to get paid should be the least of your worries because in this post I will show you how to easily receive payments online without a website.
Payment gateway/processor to use
Paystack is a top choice when it comes to receiving payments online in Nigeria. The cool things is that if if your business is not a registered one you can use their “Starter Business” plan and the signup is free.
Create a Paystack account
Since we are using Paystack for this the first step is to create your Paystack account at paystack.com. But if you already have an account simply log in.
Create a payment page
From your Paystack dashboard, under Seller Tools, click Payment Pages.
Enter the payment details
Title: this is what the person paying you will see. Details include page title. For example “ZestMade – Tech guide for small businesses”. So enter a title that applies to your offer.
Description is basically a more detailed description to let you customers know what they are paying for.
Image is optional. So you can choose to upload an image.
Amount this the amount the customer will be charged when they pay you on this page.
Finally, click the Create button to create the page. You can edit this page later if you want to make changes:
Preview and share your payment page link
To preview your payment page simply visit the link you created. Here is the one I used in this demo:
Now you have successfully created a payment page. To start receiving payment all you have to do is copy the page link and share it to your customers:
You can use the link the normal way you use other links. For example, you can share it on Facebook, WhatsApp, etc.
And that is it! Now show love by sharing this post. Thanks!
