When you create and use an item-specific URL for checkout, the user interface of the In-app Checkout is retained but is displayed as a pop-up window in a new tab. This is a manual process of adding the item IDs to create a plan-specific URL and this process leads to maximum effort and time consumption. Now, every plan details page has a dynamic payment URL on each price point page, making it incredibly simple for you to share a payment link. Navigate from the Product Catalog > Plans index page > Plan details page > Customer-Facing Info > Get Payment Link (or) Settings > Configure Chargebee > Checkout & Self-Serve Portal > INTEGRATE WITH CHARGEBEE > Via Payment Link


Here's how an item-specific URL for a plan looks like


Now, to customize it for your usage, the placeholders need to be replaced with your Chargebee site name and Plan ID or Plan Price Point ID.


For a site named having Plan Price Point ID as "mars-trip-usd-monthly" we can construct the item specific URL as below:[item_price_id][0]=mars-trip-usd-monthly&subscription_items[quantity][0]=5

Furthermore, adding add-ons, charges, coupons, and many more to the query string with all the fields pre-filled and checking out the URL looks like this.

Get Payment Link

You can generate the URL from Plan Price Point Page & from Checkout & Self-Serve Portal 

Plan Price Point Page

To minimize the above manual efforts, our goal is to include a dynamic payment URL on each price point page, making it incredibly simple for the merchant to share a payment link and begin collecting payments. When the user clicks on the Get Payment Link, they will be redirected to an in-app checkout with the line items and upon confirmation, they will be directed to the payments page to complete the checkout.

Navigate from the Product Catalog > Plans index page > Plan details page > Customer-Facing Info > Get Payment Link.

Now, you can copy the Plan's URL by clicking on Copy and share it directly with your customers. 

Checkout & Self-Serve Portal page

Navigate from Settings > Configure Chargebee > Checkout & Self-Serve Portal > INTEGRATE WITH CHARGEBEE > Via Payment Link.

You can add the Product Family, Checkout Type (Subscription/One Time Payment), Plan, Currency & Frequency. 

You can also add Addon & Charge and once done, you can click on Copy Code.

Payment Link: Checkout & Self-Serve Portal 

The dynamic payment link will be created only for the following use cases:

1. Payment links will be generated for the following pricing models - Flat Fee, Per Unit, Tiered, Volume, and Stair-step.

2. The link will be generated for Accounts with or without Shipping enabled.

3. The link will be not generated for any type of metered billing.

Note: This Get payment link is available only on PC 2.0. This Payment link supports In-app checkout and Full page checkout.
