Despite the popularity of messaging apps like Messenger and WhatsApp, SMS is still an irreplaceable communication tool.

Companies and businesses use it to send customers delivery confirmations, appointment reminders, and promotional offers.

Besides those, text-to-pay is another innovative SMS feature that has gained traction in the past few years.

GoHighLevel integrates it smoothly within its all-in-one marketing platform, making it accessible to its users without additional costs.

Let’s explore how the GoHighLevel text-to-pay feature works.

What Is the GoHighLevel Text-to-Pay Feature

Text-to-pay (or Text2pay) is a modern solution for businesses looking to streamline transactions. It allows you to receive payments through a simple SMS message.

This feature is functional in various scenarios. For example, if you’re at a networking event and meet someone interested in your marketing services, you can quickly set up a payment request through a text message.

It’s also handy if you’re on a call with someone who decides they want to start your coaching sessions and send their payment immediately.

Currently, GoHighLevel requires you to set up this feature manually, as workflow automation is not yet available. But don’t worry. You can have it ready in just a few minutes or seconds and start accepting money on your mobile device immediately.

  • It’s customer-centric. This feature makes paying for services a breeze for your clients. They don’t need to access their email or visit your website. A simple click allows them to input and complete their payment details.
