Chat 2 Pay
For more detailed information on the Chat 2 Pay extension, see the Chat 2 Pay User Guide. You can also consult our Chat 2 Pay FAQs.

What is Chat 2 Pay?

The Chat 2 Pay feature allows a merchant to embed a Clickatell "extension" into their CRM/OMS (Customer Relationship Management/Order Management System) which allows a call-center agent to trigger a payment request to their customers (i.e., the end-user). This payment request will be received by the customer via an SMS or WhatsApp message. The URL embedded in the message allows the customer to open a secure payment page where they can enter a new credit/debit card or utilize a saved credit/debit card that will be used by the merchant to process payments via the merchant's payment processor/gateway. This feature allows merchants to accept orders from customers via their call-center without requiring customers to expose their personal payment information to the call-center agent.
Chat 2 Pay currently supports the following CRM/OMS system and payment processors/gateways:
    CRM/OMS: Salesforce
    Payment Processor/Gateway: CyberSource
To start using this service, you must complete four steps:
    Configure your payment processor/gateway
    Set up the Chat 2 Pay extension in the Clickatell Portal
    Install the Salesforce cartridge
    Utilize the functionality as a customer service agent in Salesforce
This page focuses on the part that takes place in the Clickatell Portal (Step 2) only. For more detail on the other steps, see the Chat 2 Pay user guide.
