Taking phone payments frequently asked questions

Phone Payment Frequent Questions:

  • What laws and regulations do I have to comply with?
  • How do I secure customer sensitive financial data?
  • How do I set up a ‘clean environment’ with home workers?
  • If I don’t record calls, is that enough?
  • What happens if I don’t comply?

The security requirements put many people off taking card payments over the phone, whilst others simply neglect to comply.

Phone Payment Regulations

If you take card payments, you must comply with industry regulations!


Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is mandatory if you fail to comply and suffer a breach, liabilities include:

  • Lost confidence from your customers
  • Cost of reissuing new payment cards
  • Fraud losses and Audit fees
  • Higher subsequent costs of compliance
  • Legal costs, settlements, and judgments
  • Fines and penalties
  • Termination of the ability to accept card payments
  • Going out of business

The last one is very real. In fact, audit fees and fines lead to over 55% of SME’s to close doors after suffering a breach.

PCI Security Standards Council
GDPR Regulations


Then there is the Data Protection Act, brought in to replace the Data Protection Directive. GDPR was created to give greater control to individuals’ personal information. Protecting them from security breaches or misuse of their details.

It applies to all organisations and failure to adhere to its legislation can lead to huge consequences for any size business.

Company Directors are personally liable under the Data Protection Act for neglecting to comply with the GDPR and safeguard their sensitive customer information.

Every business is a target for card fraudsters; with PayGuard® we’ve been able to reduce risk to the business without impacting the customer journey as we can keep the agent and customer communicating through the whole process.

Our customers can also feel secure, never needing to read out their card details to our agent, which promotes our reputation as a security conscious business. I would strongly recommend the system to any business looking for peace of mind within the world of payments. Agents have fed back that it is a fast and easy process, which is a pleasant departure from the gripes of having to learn a complicated new process.

I wouldn’t just endorse PayGuard®, I think that all businesses taking telephone payments should use this system.
