The advances in technology now make it very easy for customers to pay with their debit or credit card. If you are face to face you can opt for the traditional Chip & PIN payment which is speedy or if your payment is under £30 the customer can “pay & wave” with contactless technology.
If the customer isn’t present, you can opt for the mail order option which is refreshingly simple. I’m sure most of us have paid for goods with something over the phone, in that instance the customer may need to provide additional card information such as post code numerics and house numbers to where the card is registered to. If you are about to start accepting credit cards then logistically everything is a lot simpler than it used to be.
