24-hour debit card payment gateways

Taking payments over the telephone

Do you take payment from customers over the telephone by credit or debit card
, or would you like your business to be able to do so?

Many businesses take credit or debit card details over the telephone by asking the customer to read out their credit or debit card details.

Higher standards of security

PCI DSS is being tightened up, meaning
it will no longer be acceptable to take card payments by telephone
with the cardholder reading out their card details
, regardless of whether you enter the credit or debit card details into a card machine or payment web site
.

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) on , all personal data, including credit and debit card data, must be handled securely.

The effect on small businesses

This restriction
creates
a problem
for small businesses that need to take payments over the telephone but do not have the resources
to invest in a full-scale secure telephone-based credit and debit card
