Traditionally mail or telephone order (MOTO) card transactions required merchants to key enter card data for payment approval and settlement. Recurring payments are those for which a cardholder gives permission to automatically charge his or her account on a regular basis. The benefits to the merchant include lowering outstanding receivables, improving cash flow and cutting collections cost and bad debt as well as updating the image of your company and enhancing customer service.
There are rules that govern recurring transactions that you will want to be aware of. In addition, special incentive Interchange rates are available making the cost of accepting recurring credit cards as low as face-to-face "card present" transactions. These emerging market rates apply to governments, schools, utilities, insurance, cable, and pay television.
A variety of payment solutions including physical terminals, payment software and virtual terminals are in use today. However, the best practices for these types of payment transactions to protect your business, reduce your PCI compliance scope and limit your exposure to card data compromise is to not handle this data in the first place.
More and more businesses are choosing payment technology that allows their customers to enter their own card data using a secure, hosted check out page. Hosted check out pages are being built into CRM and chat software, and simply implemented by emailing a payment link.
