Phone Order / MOTO Merchant Accounts

Phone Order / MOTO Merchant Accounts

In addition to the growing trend of mobile sales, more and more retailers and businesses are now allowing their customers to shop online via a website, which requires merchants to utilize 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 many different types of MOTO systems, including computer software and web-based applications that allow merchants to accept credit card payments over the Internet and over the phone.

The benefits of MOTO processors include:

  • Lower costs compared with other wireless processing products and services
  • Increased sales
  • Ability to accept credit card transactions on-the-go, from anywhere
  • Available any time of day so no need to worry about time zones or late night sales

In order to earn the lowest possible rates and protect your business from potential chargebacks, Ignite Payments recommends that you obtain the following information when taking a phone order:

  • Cardholder name
  • Card number
  • Expiration date
  • CVV / CVV2 (security number on the back of the card)
  • Street address number and zip code

With the appropriate processing system or terminal, the address verification service (AVS) will prompt you for information to assist you in minimizing your risk of fraudulent transactions. We also recommend that you obtain a signature via mail or fax next to the payment amount if possible, to help you avoid potential chargebacks.
