Support for: PayLink Product
PayLink is an integrated, digital payment processing product designed for and
supported by Encompass Technologies. PayLink allows established merchants
(customers of Encompass Technologies) to collect and make payments. Payment
types accepted and processed by PayLink include credit card, debit card, electronic
check capture, and automated clearing house (ACH). Payments are gathered by a
merchant through a mobile app or entered manually via a website supported by
Encompass Technologies. All merchants are able to see a history of debits and
credits in their Encompass PayLink account.
PayLink and BEES Background
In December of 2022, BEES and PayLink were integrated to allow BEES users access to
PayLink via BEES. Users of BEES that are also established as merchants with PayLink
are able to login into BEES, place orders, and then enter PayLink without the hassle of
additional sign-ons and authentication requirements provided by the BEES user.
Enrollment in PayLink
To enroll in PayLink and receive payments as a merchant, a distributor must
complete a full enrollment process managed by Encompass staff. This requires legal
paperwork to be completed and authorizations to and from banks. An example of
this would be a wholesale distributor that must take payment from a restaurant
owner when they deliver a case of product to their establishment.
To enroll in PayLink, an interested party must initiate the onboarding process via
email to: PayLinkSupport@dsdlink.com
Payments Only Option
To make payments to a merchant through PayLink, any party may use a link, QR
Code, or a Guest Pay option without fully enrolling in PayLink. An example of this
would be a retail operation paying a wholesale distributor for a pallet of product.
