Paytia Secure Virtual Terminal credit card processing is ideal for any size of business whose staff need to take customer payments during phone calls — from office, home or hot desk.




What is a Virtual



Not all virtual terminals are compliant with PCI-DSS and GDPR regulations, unless you take strict precautions.

A virtual terminal requires customers to read their card details to a stranger. That stranger will then enter the card details into a web form on their computer.

In order to comply with PCI-DSS with this method the staff member taking the payment must have no access to electronic devices and no access to any writing materials.

What is a Secure Virtual Terminal?


Secure Virtual Terminal is compliant with PCI-DSS and GDPR as it removes all cardholder data from your business systems and environment.

Customers enter their details using their telephone keypad, meaning your business never needs to prove how card data was stored.

If your business was never in possession of customer credit card data, then it cannot be accused of losing it.

Secure Virtual Terminal works seamlessly with your telephony and your payment gateway provider
