SOTpay+ can help you with:

Secure Online Payments

With built-in security options including AVS, CV2 checks, 3D Secure and Velocity Checking, Gala Technology and SOTpay can take care of security, leaving you to focus on growing your business. The gateway is PCI-DSS Level 1 registered and approved by Visa and Mastercard*, and enables your customer to complete a secure e-commerce or m-commerce transaction.

Deliver to Third Party Addresses

With the customer’s permission, you can take recurring payments with a few simple clicks. Their card data remains fully secure with the process of tokenisation, which converts the information into a string of randomly generated numbers (similar to encryption), which means those details are unreadable to employees taking payments, or in the event of a data breach from external sources, therefore protecting your business from unwanted costs to your bank account and business reputation.

Recurring and Subscription Payments

Turn one-time buyers into loyal repeat customers with SOTpay+ and its secure systems. The card storage facility with SOTpay enables you to create bespoke recurring payment plans to give both your business and your customer flexibility in the arrangement. You can determine how much, how often and for how long the payment plans should be. This solution is ideal for membership plans and subscription-based business models.

Merchant Management Systems

SOTpay+ allows you to customise access and permission levels for users to see the transactions processing as they happen online, run reports to support account reconciliation, as well as issue refunds, view transaction history, analyse your customers’ behaviour and identify potential threats.

Secure Payment Gateway

The SOTpay+ Payment Gateway is a superior payment processing solution. Certified to PCI-DSS Level 1, it allows businesses of any size to process secure, authenticated payments with minimal fear of chargebacks, from sole traders processing two thousand transactions per year, to multi-national enterprise processing over six million transactions per year.

A major benefit to SOTpay+ is that its Open Payment Network gives you complete Acquirer Independence; your current merchant account provider may not be your provider forever. You are free to shop around to get better processing rates or service, or wish to see the funds in your bank more quickly than you currently receive them. It can be a complicated process to change your merchant account provider, often needing the help of your development team, which may incur further expense. Gala Technology has built a large Open Payment Network of UK-based acquirers, as well gaining further connections in Europe, North America and Asia. Our access to this wide network can enable you to compare the market easily, which gives you freedom and flexibility to go where your business will benefit most.

Flexibility is also the order of the day when it comes to integrating your shopping cart. Ensuring your payment gateway is able to connect to your online shopping cart is absolutely vital. Some larger providers of online shopping carts have strong and restrictive relationships to gateway providers, such as the relationship between Shopify and Stripe, which means there are fewer options available. Gala Technology has a wider range of available shopping cart partners, which in turn increases the options available to you, and doesn’t restrict your ability to pick and choose.

Which other methods of online payment can Gala Technology support?

The main source of payment you are likely to accept through your online gateway systems will be credit or debit card, but the ways in which people can make payments are increasing in variety all of the time, and it help to be open to accepting new technologies, such as digital wallets, Paypal, or SOFORT.

Whilst SOTpay+ can deal with taking recurring payments using a customer’s card, if your business model works on a subscription basis, you should consider Direct Debit. Accepting Direct Debits as a form of payment for regular recurring payments can help your accounts team to effectively manage cashflow and keep on top of customer bills.

Did you know?

9/10 of UK consumers use Direct debits to pay some or all of their regular bills

An emerging method of taking online payments is Open Banking, which allows your business to accept payments by rapid bank transfer via banking app. This method of payment removes the need for you as a business owner to worry about PCI-DSS Compliance, as it connects your customer to their online or mobile banking for an account2account payment, which means the card data is not required. Remember though, if you accept card payments aswell as Open Banking then you will still require PCI-DSS Compliance.

What are the benefits of Open Banking?

  • Gain immediate access to funds, helping your cash flow
  • Improve customer experience by providing real time refunds
  • No PCI-DSS requirements, reducing your security risks
  • Gain lower costs compared to card payments, boosting your business balance
  • Future-proof your business ahead of forthcoming European PSD2 regulations which will incorporate Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)

How much does taking online payments cost my business?

The price of accepting online payments really does depend on the quantity of transactions you expect to take, who your payment acquirer is and which payment methods you intend to accept. The simplest process for getting priced up is to get in touch so that our experts can understand your business and provide you with a bespoke pricing plan, which starts from as little as £9.99 per month.
