Accepting card payments over the phone?

Question asked by Veronica - Feb 24, 2014
Question

What do I need to have in place in order to accept credit card payments by telephone?

You can accept card payments from customers for purchases over the telephone with either a card payment terminal or an online card payment gateway. With a standard debit/credit card machine the customer communicates the card number and you enter the data as if the customer were in front of you. Transaction fees for accepting card payments over the telephone may be higher than for an actual face-to-face transaction because there is more risk involved before accepting payment over the phone by card.
