E-Commerce: Accepting Payments Online and by Phone

If you’re like most people the whole idea of changing a process in the way you work can be a little intimidating. No one likes to ‘disrupt’ the flow but what if disruption, brings reporting, added income, and streamlined transactions? Those are just a few of the benefits to accepting payments through a website or over the phone.

Adding this service also gives your customers another way to do business when they can’t make it in person, which is critical now if you’re a business still waiting to be phased back into full operation. Setting up eCommerce can also help you toward your goal if you’re looking to grow through alternate business strategies. This functionality will meet the needs of your customers who prefer to do business online, while also allowing you to connect with a new audience.

Additional benefits can give you the ability to:

  • Sync transactions with accounting software
  • Accept eCheck and ACH payments along with payments through a mobile app
  • Set up recurring billing
  • Offer card on file options and other features to your customers

If you feel that you don’t need to process transactions in person, then you may be able to eliminate equipment altogether.

Whether you’re serving other businesses and managing invoices, or if you’re simply looking to take orders over the phone, we have the technology and equipment to facilitate both web and phone acceptance for a variety of transaction types.
