Furthermore, Uelz Pay allows the business to choose the mode of payment and the frequency of collection. After that, the business can use APIs to integrate the Uelz system into its own platform or generate payment links so that invoices can be distributed via email, WhatsApp, and social media.

Additionally, it allows them to keep track of all payments made and to obtain metrics and sales data, all of which are necessary for the business to be able to make decisions. Every piece of information is securely saved, and the platform gives a recovery after every transaction error, thereby substantially reducing the standard rate.
