GoDaddy Payments Help

Using Online Pay Links

Create, share, and manage Online Pay Links (a free feature with GoDaddy Payments) through your Payments Hub. With Online Pay Links, you can generate links to share via social media, email or text, and have your customers pay easily online.

Most GoDaddy accounts come with GoDaddy Payments enabled, so you can quickly begin accepting payments through Online Pay Links. To have your funds directly deposited into your bank account, simply complete the one-time setup process and link the bank account where you’d like your funds.



Generate and share a customized Online Pay Link to accept payment for anything you like. The link creates a webform that customers can use to make payments easily. You can also create Online Pay Links from within your Websites + Marketing website by editing the action button.

  1. Sign in to your Payments Hub (use your GoDaddy username and password). If this is your first time creating a pay link, select Get Started and follow the provided tutorial.
  2. Select Online Pay Links.
  3. On the Links tab, select Create Link.
  4. Fill in the Title and Description fields.
  5. If you’d like to add an image (like your company logo), select Upload Image to upload a JPG or PNG image file.
  6. Enter the Price you want to charge.
    • To enter a fixed amount, type any price of $1 or more.
    • To let your customer set their own price, turn on the Allow customer to set a price toggle.
    • To have your customer to choose from a list of options, select Add Option, and then add up to four additional prices. If you’d like, you can enter a Title for each price.
  7. If you’d like to customize the URL for your Online Pay Link, enter alphanumeric characters under Customize Link. The words you enter will appear at the end of the URL.
  8. Select Create Link to finish.
