Telephone-based credit card payment gateways Uttoxeter
Card payments by telephone
Does your business take credit or debit card payments over the telephone from customers, or would being able to do so improve your Uttoxeter-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
Tightening standards for PCI DSS compliance mean it will no longer be acceptable to take card payments by telephone from customers reading out their card details, regardless of whether you enter the credit or debit card details into a card machine or payment web site.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) becomes enforceable on and it is expected that shortly afterwards the card payment industry will require tighter security on card payments taken by telephone.
The problem for small businesses
This increased security leaves a gap 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.
