Telephone-based debit card payment gateways Langley Mill
Taking payments over the telephone
Does your business take credit or debit card payments over the telephone from customers, or would the ability to do so benefit your Langley Mill-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.
Enhanced card payment security
PCI DSS is being tightened up, meaning it will no longer be possible to take card payments over the telephone from cardholders who read out their card details, whether the details are entered 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 problem for your business
This tightened security leaves a problem for small businesses needing to take card payments by telephone but without the resources to invest in a full-scale secure telephone-based credit and debit card payment gateway. It also creates an opportunity for you to get ahead of your competitors and introduce a secure automated payment gateway ahead of the rule changes.
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.
