How to get started using the PayLink PAX app 

last updated June 1st, 2021


The PayLink app is available for download on the PAX A920 and PAX A60 Android payment terminals. The app can connect to your Micros POS or OrderCounter POS systems, or be used as standalone, and allows you to pull a list of checks from the POS, where you can apply a payment, send a digital receipt, or send a PayLink to your customer’s mobile device. 

Wait-staff can enter orders in the POS system and use the PayLink app to pull a list of all open checks. From there:


1. Wait-staff can accept payments through the Android Pax terminal (swipe, NFC, and EMV compatible) and post payments to the POS system. Customers can then receive a digital receipt by entering their mobile number or receive a printed receipt from the terminal. 

2. Wait-staff can send a PayLink via text message to the customer’s mobile phone. The customer can open the link to their check and pay by entering their card details to submit a secure online payment using their mobile browser. This includes the options for customers to check out using Google Pay or Apple Pay. 

    1. Note: This can include the ability to allow customers to add items to their check using the Add to Order function on their receipt. Contact support for more information about allowing customers to add items to their order.
