Imagine this, your customers do not have to be on Eversend to pay you. Because, with payment tags, anyone with a mobile money wallet or bank account can pay you straight to your Eversend wallet in 5 countries. It’s cool, isn’t it? Let us now dive into payment tags, what they are, how they work, and how you can get started in a few minutes.
What are Eversend payment tags?
A payment tag is a link that anyone with a mobile money wallet or bank account can use to pay you straight to your Eversend wallet. Current supported mobile money wallets include MTN, Airtel, and MPESA. (Tag payments from a bank to your wallet are only supported in Nigeria.)
How/Where do I get my payment tag?
All Eversend users have a payment tag by default so you do not have to create one yourself. However, you can customize your tag to your liking by changing the suffix. To get your tag, open the Eversend app, click on “More” then scroll down to tag and click “Share” to copy. If you want to edit your tag suffix, follow the instructions on how to get your tag, tap on the tag and click on the 3 dots at the top right corner. Share that tag to get paid by your customers or anyone who has a mobile money wallet.
How to pay someone using their Eversend payment tag
When you receive a payment tag on your phone, and you are already on Eversend, it simply opens the app and goes straight to paying the tag owner straight to their mobile wallet.
