Telephone-based credit card payment gateways Wirksworth
Taking payments over the telephone
Does your business take credit or debit card payments over the telephone from customers, or would being able to do so improve your Wirksworth-based business?
Many businesses take credit or debit card details over the telephone by asking the customer to read out their credit or debit card details.
Increasing security standards
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, whether the details are entered into a card machine or payment web site.
Tighter security on card payments is expected to be introduced shortly after the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) becomes enforceable from .
How this affects your business
This tightened security leaves a gap 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 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.
Secure payment gateways for small businesses
The card payment gateway we offer is telephone-based and specially created for small and medium-sized businesses. It can be tailored to your business and at a very cost-effective price. It includes customised voice prompts, taking your customers step by step through making their payment.
The payment gateway is fully automated, taking payments from your customers at any time of day and night every day of the week without anyone ever having to read out their card details, which gives vastly-increased security over manual payment methods and at the same time allowing to take payments even while your business is closed. It is ideal for use both at your place of business and at exhibitions.
As the payment gateway is fully compliant with PCI DSS level 1 security standards, you not only get the ability to take credit and debit card payments all day every day; you also get an effortless way to comply with the new security standards. It comes with a full reporting package and can work with your existing merchant accounts.
