FAQs about online payments

How do I take payments online?

You can take online payments with us in two easy ways: Pay by link

You can use our virtual terminal to create a link that you can email over to your customer (or you can text them, IM them, or send them a QR code, etc). When they click the link, it’ll take them to a secure payment page where they can enter their card details and pay you securely.

Pay by link is super helpful in scenarios where you’d usually get paid after you’d already delivered the goods or service, such as with an invoice (and nothing needs to be posted).

Hosted payment pages
We can also help you add hosted payment pages to your website, so you can accept payments online. We’ll take the customer’s card data and redirect the payment to their bank so they can authenticate it using 3D secure. Also, as hosted payment pages technically belong to us, you won’t need to worry as much about complying with the Data Security Standard of the Payment Card Industry (PCI DSS).

Are online payments safe?

With Tyl, you can take payments securely online whether you’re using hosted payments pages or our virtual terminal. Taking payments in these ways helps keep your cardholder data safe and minimises your PCI exposure.

When you take payments on our hosted pages or using pay by link, you also get the added benefit of 3D Secure authentication, which helps reduce fraud and reduce your liability for chargebacks.

What are the advantages of online payments?

There are loads of benefits of online payments:

  • They're easy to set up - you can integrate them into your website quickly and easily, and they're compatible with the most popular shopping carts.
  • Our online payment pages blend right in, and their responsive design is optimised for desktop, mobile and tablet
  • You can accept payments from all major debit and credit cards, including American Express, Visa and MasterCard
  • They give your customers a fast, secure way to pay
  • All you need is an internet connection and a computer, smartphone or tablet to load up your virtual terminal
  • You can reach even more customers than you did before, and take orders and payments outside of your normal working hours
  • Taking payments is smoother, which means you'll free up more time to work on other areas of your business
  • Your employees can use your virtual terminal from wherever they are
  • You can use our fraud protection and security checks to make sure everything’s secure

How do I access my e-commerce portal?

You’ll need to log in using the store ID and password, which will be different for each environment. Here are the links to both:



It’s a good idea to make sure the live payment data is only processed via the production account. The authorisation results in the test account are simulated, so the money won’t be sent to you.

What can I do in the e-commerce portal?

With the e-commerce portal, you can:

  • Use the virtual terminal to take payments over the phone or to generate payment links
  • See all your sales data and reports
  • Use our anti-fraud tools
  • Accept or decline if you’re using pre-authorisation
  • Process refunds (full or partial)
  • Create and manage users
  • Customise the look and feel of your hosted payment pages
