Process Credit Card Payments by Phone

Accepting credit cards over the phone is considered to be the riskiest type of transaction. Reason is you cannot be certain who is on the other side of the line and need instant verification technology to help you verify transactions quickly.

MagicPay is an expert in MOTO transactions. We have in-house gateway technology that allows multiple level of verification by phone, along with the ability to store credit card data securely, all with PCI Compliance in mind.

You can receive payments for booking rooms or holding rooms by phone by using our virtual terminal or by integrating your booking software to our payment gateway. Either way you would be able to utilize CVV & AVS verification technologies. Extra layers of verification can also be utilized such as phone verification and email verification by using our custom API.

We find that hospitality and lodging merchants need to be able to process cards at different scenarios and have designed a system that would allow hospitality merchants to accept payments at anytime, without losing the next customer. The idea is to bring access to payment processing at any given time for hotels, resorts, motels and lodging establishments.

    Accept Card-Present Transactions at Your Hotel

    Every hotel or lodging establishment must have a credit card terminal in place for accepting payments. Retail (card-present) payments are considered to be pretty straight-forward and simple, but with EMV, NFC and other processing technologies on the market, you need to make sure you can accommodate the card types your guests might have.

    MagicPay provides a variety of credit card terminals, accepting PIN debit cards, and all sorts of credit cards including EMV Chip technology, NFC (Contact-less), MSR (Swipe) and international cards. We can supply new terminals or re-program existing terminals. Our merchant account supports the following credit card machine types: Verifone, Ingenico, PAX, Dejavu, First Data, Nurit, Hypercom and more. If your machine is not listed, we can still most likely support it, please contact us for more details.


    Chargeback Prevention and Monitoring for Hospitality & Lodging

    MagicPay is an expert in chargeback protection. We have designed a program for hospitality merchants that helps prevent chargebacks. Our program is successful in eliminating about 65% of chargebacks if used correctly. Once your merchant account is setup with us, your account manager would work with you in designing the chargeback prevention strategy that is best for you.

    First, we advise our merchants to utilize our 3D Secure feature for online bookings. This provides an extra layer of authentication with the customer’s bank. 3D Secure proves the issuing bank that the transaction was in fact authorized by their customer, therefore when their customer calls the bank to dispute the charge, the bank, in many cases, is reluctant to doing so and in many cases advises the customer to solve the issue directly with the merchant, bringing you a great advantage.

    Secondly, we advise merchants input a recognizable descriptor. Some merchants put a descriptor that may be hard to remember, this is enough for some clients to call and dispute the payment.

    For hotel merchants that find chargebacks to be a major concern, we advise to use our special chargeback monitoring service, this service works with 70% of credit cards issued in the US and allows merchants a 48 hours time to review, refund or resolve issues with clients before a transaction becomes a chargeback.
