Receiving payments

Rave provides you with an easy way to receive payment from anywhere in the world via card payments, bank accounts, QR codes, USSD, Mobile money, and Mpesa.

Rave offers you a variety of options on how to receive payment from your customer once you are signed up, and also helps you to create any type of payments flow—from e-commerce to recurring billing and everything in between.

The different methods available in collecting payments on Rave includes;

Payment links

From your Rave dashboard, you can create custom links which you can send to your customers or embed in your website for customers to pay you. A payment link directs your customers to a custom page created by Rave for that payment. An example of a payment page is shown below.

An example payment page

When the Pay button is clicked, a payment modal shows up for the customer to pay using any of the payment channels available for that currency.

You can also use payment links to receive recurring payments. Follow this link for more information on  recurring payments.

Donation page

The donate page does almost the same job as the payment link only that it was built specifically for accepting donations.

One of the many advantages of the donate page feature is that the merchant can customize the page with features such as a background image and the donor can determine whether or not he wants to make a one-time donation or a monthly donation.

Please see sample donation page here;

Sales mode

The Rave dashboard has a sales mode feature which you can use to collect payments from your customers in person or over the phone. They can simply input their payment credentials (card, account, etc) on your device and proceed to make payment. Here is a direct link to the sales mode page on the dashboard.
