We are pleased to inform that the much-anticipated API to connect to us and send payment requests to your customers is now live.

 An API is a way for your website to connect to us to request we send a Payment Request to your clients. 

Our Merchants need only login and you can see the API tab in your account.

From that page you can see Sample Code and Detailed Instructions to give your web Developer to connect to our API and automatically send Payment Request Emails.


For additional assistance please email our support team on support@howtopay.com

Basic Process flow is as follows:

1. Merchant enterers detail via website or API to create Payment Request. 

2. Our Server creates a Reference Number and sends this back to the Merchant. 

3. After this our system sends the details via email off to the Client. 

4. Client Makes payment via Online Banking. 

5. Within 24 hours the payment status of the Reference Number is updated to PAID

6. Merchant Receives an email. 

7. Merchant via API can check the status of any Payment Request Number automatically. 

8. Funds are then sent on to the merchant automatically. 

The benefits are unlike Credit Card payments fraud is extremely low as users are paying either in cash or via online banking.
