Phone Order Credit Card Processing Techniques
Phone Order Processing can be done in various ways like touch tone processing, POS software based processing and processing using a virtual terminal.
In touch tone processing the merchant does not need to manually key in the credit card details of the customer. Instead they call an automated number set up against their merchant account and key in the details of the credit card and the transaction amount and can verify the transaction.
While using a POS software, the details of the credit card and the sales amount need to be keyed in a POS software set up in the merchant‚Äôs computer.
The most popular service for phone order processing is the virtual machine processing where order can be processed from an ecommerce store based system. This is a relatively easy to use and cost effective option for the merchant.
So if you can decide which processing type fits the best into your business or even if you can not decide for yourself call us up for suggestions and details at CCMP.
