E-commerce Merchant Accounts
A decade ago, when people wanted to go shopping, they usually drove to the mall. Today, as technology continues to evolve and the World Wide Web allows people to do almost anything via the Internet, E-Commerce is becoming a primary form of shopping for many consumers. In fact, it's very common for people to sit at home in their pajamas and shop for everything they need online by visiting the websites of their favorite stores, adding what they want into their "shopping cart" on the website, and making secure orders by entering their credit card information right there on the site.
If you are a retailer or business wanting to expand your business or allow your customers to shop online in addition to onsite or in-store, you've come to the right place. At First Data Independent Sales, we offer a host of options in wireless and virtual credit card processing to meet your E-commerce needs.
The benefits of leveraging the Internet and taking orders online include:
- Increased Sales
- Increased customer satisfaction
- Broader geographical reach (often global)
- Additional marketing avenues (e.g. search engine/social networking)
If you are looking to explore your E-commerce options, you will want to look into the different types of wireless processing devices and services available to you, so that you can accept credit card payments online and/or over the phone.
To successfully conduct business over the Internet, you will need MOTO processing (an acronym for Mail Order/Telephone Order credit card processing), a type of card-not-present (CNP) credit card processing service. As any other type of CNP transaction, Mail Order/Telephone Order (MOTO) transactions do not require the physical presence of the credit card, just the credit card details, and sometimes, the personal details of the cardholder.
There are several types of MOTO processors, but if you are looking to allow customers to shop on your website and make payments on the site, you will want to purchase a gateway processing system, which is a web-based application that allows your customers to make purchases on your web site and where your online payments can be handled one at a time or as an entire batch.
