Global reach: accepting card payments from anywhere in the world

Expanding a business is a daunting prospect for any business owner, especially when it involves crossing borders into new territories and target audiences. The good news is that with developments in technology, widening your reach and accepting international card payments is no longer as difficult as it used to be.

Card-not-present transactions, wherever they take place, create challenges with confirming the identity of the cardholder and international payments have historically added a greater level of risk and complexity. Understandably, businesses want to be sure that they can accept card payments fast and effectively while maintaining consistency of the brand and security for both them and their customers.

PCI Telecom can deliver just that. We create bespoke card payment gateways for businesses of all types and sizes, for payments made through multiple channels including over the phone, via IVR and online. All our solutions are compliant with Level 1 PCI DSS – the security framework created by major card brands and recognised globally – offering you the highest possible protection against card fraud and data breaches. Our solutions ensure that these compliance obligations are met without compromising the checkout experience for the customer and ensuring brand and service consistency wherever in the world your products and services are being accessed.

While our payment gateway solutions can be used with any payment service provider, our partnership with Opayo means that our clients can benefit from being able to accept international payments without needing an entirely separate payment platform to their UK operations. Payments can be made using local currencies via services such as EPS, Giropay, Ideal, JCB, Sofort and China Union Pay. Through our existing clients, we are already processing transactions across Europe, America, Africa and as far as Australia, providing a secure and reliable payment gateway solution to those businesses that are trading across borders and currencies.
