How are you able to accept a credit card payment over the phone?

7 years 1 month ago #331603 by Ben Mayer
This has happened a few times, where a client that is out of state or another county sends contract back to me via fax or email.  But doesn't want to put billing information on email or fax, however wants to pay over the phone with a credit card.  Up till this point, I haven't accepted and just have them send in check to me.  Which has caused one deal to fall through cracks.  How can you accept a credit card over the phone?

You could get poor advice here, maybe give your bank a call with that question?

Why so serious?

Your merchant account should give you a payment gateway that you could manually process cards.  I would make sure you have order form sign and proper documented permission

PayPal and others allow you to enter the transaction via a browser; others provide an invoicing ability (like PayPal). You can get set up with a card-reader solution (PayPal, Square, etc) for free. Don't let another opportunity slip by when solutions are readily available.
