Payment Coupons

Through the Cash charges module, you can generate payment coupons with the necessary information to let your clients make cash payments as many times as they need in the available payment points.

This solution is useful for businesses who need to receive payments on a regular basis such as paying memberships, courses, memberships or catalog and telesales, and more.

You can receive payments without any technical knowledge. You just need to send an email where your client can download the coupon and makes the respective payment.

How does the Payment coupons work?

The Payment coupon follows a simple flow to let your clients regular cash payments as many times as they need:

  1. Configure the Payment coupon through the PayU module.
    You only need to provide how many payments per client you want to receive, decide if the payment amount is fixed or your client decides the amount, decide the payment deadline, and the payment reference.

  2. Decide the delivery of the coupon
    Decide if you want to deliver the coupons by email, by generating PDF, by payment references or collection cards (Available only for Argentina).

  3. Use the Payment coupons
    When your clients receive the coupon, they can make the payment using any of the available cash payment offices in their countries.
    Every time a client pays using the coupon, you receive a confirmation message and the amount of the purchase* is transferred to your PayU account, where you can transfer it to your bank account.

*The value transferred corresponds to the amount paid by your client minus the PayU fee.
