This isHow it works

01Step 1

Create deposit payment

Create a deposit payment and then invite the tenant by email, SMS or WhatsApp. You can also send the payment link yourself or attach it to your invoice. Registration with PAYLAX is free of charge.

02Step 2

Hand over rental object

The tenant joins the deposit payment and deposits the agreed amount of money by credit card (VISA / MasterCard), IMMEDIATELY (Klarna) or bank transfer on the trust account. PAYLAX will inform you when the money has been received and you can then hand over the rental object.

03Step 3

Refund deposit

Once you have received and checked the rental item, release the deposit in real time via PAYLAX. Your tenant will immediately receive confirmation of the release and can now arrange for a free withdrawal to his bank account. An adjustment of the repayment amount is also possible.

Whether machines for construction and agriculture or industrial machines, rental apartments, holiday apartments, electrical appliances, mobile homes or film and photographic equipment - PAYLAX allows you to securely request and manage deposits at any time.

Offer your customers a secure and simple payment method and increase their confidence in your platform.



Simple and inexpensive payment method

With PAYLAX, you can create a link in a few seconds to request or send money securely and cost-effectively. Escrow protection offers maximum security and is particularly suitable for transactions concluded between two parties via the Internet.

Reduced risk

Existing payment service providers usually do not offer sufficient protection. The risk of fraud increases especially in transactions with unknown persons and in cross-border shipments. PAYLAX's step-by-step processing reduces the risk and allows you to act without worries. The willingness alone to handle the purchase transaction via an escrow service underlines the seriousness and integrity of the parties involved.

Protection for both parties

PAYLAX's aim is to protect both buyer and seller from fraud and to make the payment secure and fair for both parties. The deposited funds are kept safely in an insolvency-proof escrow account until the transaction is concluded. The buyer is given the opportunity to inspect the goods or service before the funds are released. The seller delivers only after receipt of payment and is protected against unexpected chargebacks.

Suitable for goods, services and deposits

There are no limits to the purchase transaction via PAYLAX. In addition to buying and selling goods such as cars, boats, jewellery, watches, furniture, electronic goods, PAYLAX can also be used for services and deposits.

Trusted payment service provider

pay & relax GmbH, operator of the PAYLAX trust service, is a Stuttgart-based company and was founded in 2015. PAYLAX is based on a cooperation between pay & relax GmbH and MANGOPAY SA, an authorised and CSSF (financial supervisory authority) supervised e-money institution in Luxembourg. Client funds are held in insolvency-protected escrow accounts with ING. EUR deposits via Bank Transfer are processed by Commerzbank in Germany, deposits in GBP and USD are processed by Barclays Bank in London and transfers in CHF, AUD and CAD are processed by BNP Paribas in Luxembourg.
