Pre-population of Express Payment: In addition to placing a Paymate logo on your website, you can also fill in details of the order (reference number, price) and customer (email, name and address) if you have already captured these via a form on your website prior to the payment being made. This reduces the effort for the customer. You will need to create ‘buy now’ buttons for each product on your website so that the right information is filled into Paymate Express for each purchase.
