Operation Secure Horizon: Transform Your Payment Process with SOTpay

In the ever-evolving digital landscape of 2024, businesses face a critical decision point in how they handle customer payments. The method of accepting credit card details over the phone—a practice once common—is now a glaring vulnerability in your business's armour. But why cling to outdated methods when you could be embracing the future of secure, efficient transactions with SOTpay?

The Risks of Traditional Payment Methods

Are you still accepting traditional payments over the telephone, requiring customers to share their credit card details verbally? If so, you're not just sticking to an old-fashioned method; you're opening up Pandora's box of potential threats to your business and customer security. This practice is not common anymore for good reasons.

Six Essential Reasons to Move Away from Verbal Credit Card Transactions

  1. Security Concerns: Transactions where credit card details are shared verbally are inherently non-secure, exposing both you and your customers to significant risks of fraud and data breaches.

  2. High Charges: Non-secure transactions attract exceptionally high charges, unnecessarily increasing your operational costs.

  3. Risk of Chargebacks: The likelihood of incurring expensive chargebacks with these transactions can severely impact your financial health.

  4. Compliance Breaches: Continuing this practice breaches PCI compliance standards, putting your business at risk of penalties and fines.

  5. Increased Processing Fees: Non-compliance leads to very high processing fees, further eating into your profits.

  6. Merchant ID Risks: Perhaps the biggest threat is the risk of losing your merchant ID number, which is essential for your business operations.
