How does PayGuard Work?

Using PayGuard is simple.

When your staff want to take a payment, they login to PayGuard from a web browser, through Microsoft Teams, or through third-party, sector-specific applications we have integrations with.

We give you multiple secure and compliant choices on how to collect sensitive financial information from customers, such as credit card details or bank account information.

You process the payment in real-time, staying connected with your customer throughout.

Checkout our video on taking a simple payment using the Payment Link process, or how to set up a subscription payment using the Phone Keypad (DTMF) process.
