WorldPay Virtual Terminal
What Is The Virtual Terminal?
The Virtual Terminal is a secure web based terminal allowing you to enter your customer's card number and other details into a web browser and submit them to your Merchant Account for authorisation and processing. Transactions are authorised and processed in as little as a few seconds.
The Virtual Terminal is an optional extra with your WorldPay Internet Merchant Account or your Streamline Merchant Account. All credit and debit card transactions must be processed through a merchant account. If you only ever want to take orders by telephone, then no problem, but you must still have a Merchant Account.
All transactions processed through your Virtual Terminal will be shown in your Customer Management System together with transactions from your web site.
How Does The Virtual Terminal Work?
- Shopper telephones the merchant to place an order. The merchant enters customer details and credit card details into the Virtual Terminal.
- The merchant clicks the button to process the transaction. The card details are processed in real time, normally within a few seconds.
- The merchant is notified on screen that the transaction has been authorised. Both the shopper and the merchant receive email confirmation that the transaction has taken place. Merchant informs the shopper that the transaction has been authorised and arranges to despatch the goods or provide services to the shopper.
