|When a business elects to accept credit cards for payment, one of the things that they have to consider is the processing method that they will use to take that payment.|
Here are some of the current options available for processing payments:
present (e.g. a phone order), by manually entering the credit card number.
One of the features of a virtual terminal is that it can also be programmed to handle recurring transactions. If you want to charge your customer a consistent monthly / weekly amount – this can all be handled automatically by the virtual terminal.
Internet Shopping Cart
Single Page Web PaymentsThis is a solution that allows your customers to make payments that come directly to you, but avoids having a shopping cart to maintain. These are particularly useful for one-time payments. For example, youth sports programs where the parents are paying registration fees and/or dues, retailers/service providers who simply put this web address on their invoices as a way for their customers to pay without issuing a check or property managers who collect rent via this solution.
