Liven Pay

What is Liven Pay and how do I use it?

Liven Pay is the cashless payment system that allows users to pay their bills directly through the Liven app. You must link your credit card to your account, then simply use the Liven app to request a bill by tapping “Request Bill” once you have finished your meal at a participating restaurant.

What is Liven Cash?

Liven Cash is our digital currency. Think of it as a dedicated wallet for lifestyle expenses that replenishes itself the more adventures you go on. When you earn Liven Cash, you can spend it at any partner merchant, save it up, or pass it on to charity.

How do I spend my Liven cash?

When you visit a restaurant and request to pay the bill through Liven, you will be sent a payment confirmation once the restaurant staff have entered your bill details. This confirmation screen will display your credit balance and a “USE” button which you can tap to pay your bill in whole/part with your existing credit. If you do not have enough credit to pay for the entire bill, your card will be charged to make up the difference. You will still earn more Liven Cash when using up accrued balance.

Can I still use Liven Pay and get Liven Cash if I don’t have a credit card?

We’re afraid not. In order to use Liven Pay, and earn or spend Liven Cash, you must have a valid credit/debit card linked to your account. A debit Mastercard or Visa will work. To learn how to add payment details to your Liven account please refer to the Account FAQ below.

Can I use the Liven Cash I’ve earned from a transaction, to pay for that same transaction?

Not quite, Liven Cash is only accumulated upon completion of the transaction. You will be able to use the Liven Cash earned towards your next Liven transaction at the same venue, or any Liven partner venue.

I tried to pay the bill with Liven Pay but the transaction was declined, what went wrong?

If your Liven Pay transaction has been declined, there are likely insufficient funds available from the payment method linked to your Liven account. To complete the transaction, you will need to add new payment details to your Liven account (please refer to Account FAQ to find out how). If you’re certain this was not the case, check your internet access, location service settings, or Wi-fi function. If none of these work, consider reporting faulty merchant equipment to us.

Do I need an internet connection to use Liven?

Yes, you will require an active connection at the time you wish to pay your bill in order to connect to our servers. Phone number verification is also required for some venues and special promotions. We recommend a 3G or higher data plan.

I am seeing a “Redeem Now” button instead of “Request Bill”

Redeem Now allows you to redeem certain offers and promotions which are a feature of our legacy system that is currently being phased out. You cannot use Liven Pay at these venues at the moment. However, all (if not most) of the restaurants will be equipped to accept Liven Pay within the next few months.

How can I tell if a venue accepts Liven Pay or not?

All venues that are properly setup to accept Liven Pay will have a button at the bottom of their profile saying “Request Bill”. Venues that are on our soon to be replaced legacy system will have “Redeem Now” listed at the bottom of their profile.

Why do I need to enable my GPS Location for the Liven app?

It is important to enable your GPS Location for the Liven app so that we can establish a secure connection between your device and our Liven Merchant’s POS systems. Without your GPS Location enabled, we can’t verify your proximity to the merchant, so you can’t enjoy cashless payment of the bill via Liven Pay, earn Liven Cash on your transactions, or view which Liven Merchants are nearby.
