Our transition from Payment Service to Payment Gateway Provider

We’ve been going through a period of change here at PCI Telecom, developing the business to create stronger, more robust payment solutions for our existing and future clients.

Since our acquisition of RealCredit, we’ve adapted our services to become a Payment Gateway Provider (PGP). What does this mean? We will continue to deliver bespoke card payment gateways – the secure system into which card details are inputted when a customer makes a payment over the phone or online – created to meet the exact needs, specification and branding of our client businesses and their customers. But rather than us processing the payment through our own system, this move to Payment Gateway Provider means that we have the flexibility to work with any Payment Service Provider (PSP) our clients prefer, into whose secure transaction environment the card details will be seamlessly transmitted for processing.

Our solutions will continue to deliver for those businesses looking to accept card payments securely over the phone to a live agent, via an automated IVR system and/or through online platforms and weblinks – all compliant with Level 1 PCI DSS. The system remains cloud-based, so there is no need for intrusive fixtures or equipment on site. Most excitingly, for those that require the full card payment processing package, we’ve built a partnership with UK Payment Service Provider Opayo to create a resilient and cost-effective solution that can grow and adapt as businesses change over time.

If you would like to know more about how PCI Telecom can support your business with accepting card payments, whether you’re starting from scratch or looking to adapt your existing system, please do get in touch via the website, webchat, email or give us a call on 0330 022 0660.
