Automated credit card payment gateways Biddulph
Card payments by telephone
Does your business take credit or debit card payments over the telephone from customers, or would the ability to do so benefit your Biddulph-based business?
For many businesses, taking credit or debit card payments over the telephone is done by asking the customer to read out their card details.
Changes to card payment security
PCI DSS is being tightened up, meaning it will no longer be possible to take card payments over the telephone from customers reading out their card details, however you process the payment, whether using 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 problem for small businesses
This increased security creates a gap for small businesses that need to take payments over the telephone but do not have the resources to invest in an automated secure telephone-based credit and debit card payment gateway. Your business now has the chance to improve security when taking card payments ahead of the planned changes. You can use this opportunity to get ahead of your competitors.
As well as enabling you to take credit and debit card payments at your business premises, this is the ideal solution for taking credit and debit card payments at exhibitions.
