Secure Virtual Terminal
A secure virtual terminal enables payments via a computer screen without disclosing the credit card details.
What is a secure virtual terminal?
A secure virtual terminal turns your computer into a credit card terminal—it allows you to automatically process payments right from a web browser but without the cardholder needing to disclose their payment card details verbally over the telephone.
The Secure Virtual Terminal allows staff members taking payments to enter more detailed business information such as name and address information along with the transaction reference and account numbers for greater flexibility.
You no longer need to ask customers to read you their card details when you take a "customer not present" card payment. You receive instant verification on the call that the card has been authorised and your money is paid into your bank account by your chosen payment provider.
The Secure Virtual Terminal Payment Process
A call with your customer is established using your Paytia secure payment telephone number.
The merchant fills in the Secure Virtual Terminal payment web form. Then dials 729 on their phone keypad.
The customer uses their telephone keypad to enter credit card details instead of reading them out on a call.
The Secure Virtual Terminal processes the payment and confirms the outcome to the merchant and customer.
The Secure Virtual Terminal reconnects the call so the customer and the merchant can speak again.
Now your customers, staff and business have been protected from potential fraud.
