What are Accept's standalone checkout tools?
If you're managing your business through your social media platform, or if you have a website/mobileApp, but you want to send a special offer to some customer or you have a hot offer and you have no time to deploy it on your website and for any other business case you can imagine.
Accept provides you with two powerful payment options "Invoices" and "Products", which will get your service/product ready to be sold within a couple of minutes, no coding needed, just a few configurations.
