The world’s easiest-to-deploy touch-tone payment solution. Welcome to the new gold standard for payment by phone.

How to take payments via phone

When processing payments from your customers in a call centre environment, there are a few key elements to consider:

  • Compliance – call recordings often need to be paused to protect sensitive customer information. However, issues often occur when agents forget to pause or restart the recording.
  • Customer experience – if a customer is forwarded to an automated facility to process their payment and they experience issues, there is a risk that the customer may abandon the call, resulting in a lost sale. Ensuring the customer has support throughout the transaction makes for an easier experience, maximising the chances that they’ll complete the payment.
  • Privacy – protecting your customers’ payment details is paramount. Without adequate protection, your organisation is at risk of massive reputation loss in case of a data breach. Therefore, it is important to have a payment processor that removes the opportunity for the customer’s card details to be captured by the agent. We achieve this by eliminating specific visual information and audible tones whilst transacting the payment.

Agent-assisted payments

For telemarketing and telefundraising purposes, pcipayspace enables your agents to guide the customer through the payment process, resulting in a seamless transaction and better customer experience. Here’s how agent-assisted payments work:

  • After initiating a payment, the customer is transferred to a secure line, whereby keypad tones are muted on the agent’s end, but the agent remains in contact with the customer.
  • The customer then inputs their card details through the keypad.
  • The agent can confirm the validity of these inputs as they occur, without ever seeing the actual card number or CVV.
  • The rep can then submit the payment, or reset the process if the customer makes a mistake.

IVR payments

In addition, the contactSPACE software suite has an incredibly versatile IVR functionality which can be used to take payments, as well as route different customer enquiries.

You have complete control over your IVR logic and call flows. contactSPACE also provides a professional voiceover, to create a sleek payment process and minimise your abandonment rate.

The pay-by-phone IVR solution accepts all major credit/debit cards including VISA, MasterCard, AMEX and Diners Club. Payments are instantly submitted to the Australian banking network for processing, enabling real-time authorisation using our super-secure payment processing engine.
