Introducing Pay by SMS Text: Contactless Payments Made Simple

Have an invoice for a job well done? Send it to your client via text message. You read that right, with Thryv’s pay by SMS text feature, your clients can settle up right from the palm of their hand utilizing ThryvPay or Stripe for processing.

Here’s How it Works

You’ve finished the job and are ready to get the credit you deserve. Once you’ve created an invoice in your Thryv dashboard and are ready to send it to your client, you’ll be prompted to choose from three ways you can take payments:

  • Accept and charge a credit/debit card
  • Record a cash or check payment
  • (Drumroll please) Collect via SMS text (select “Collect via client mobile” as shown in the screen shot below)

Once you select “collect via client mobile” Thryv will send a payment link directly to your client’s mobile device. This allows you to easily request payment from an appointment or from an invoice by sending a text message or an email to your customer. Once received by your client, he or she is able to submit a payment to you with a few easy taps.
