While many businesses and organizations accept payments online, a significant amount of sales are still done the old-fashioned way – by phone. But manually staffing phone lines means there will inevitably be lost revenue, due to high call volume and when the office is closed.
With a pay-by-phone solution, you can accept payments around the clock through an automated system.

While the world moves towards a more digitized society, research shows that brick and mortar retail is not going away either. According to the United States Census Bureau, 90 percent of retail’s transaction value is spent at physical stores. Additionally, a study conducted by Capgemini’s Digital Transformation Institute found that 70 percent of consumers want to experience touching and feeling products before purchase. While digital has transformed retailed in many ways, it seems that in-person retail is here to stay.
However, while customers prefer to make the purchase in-store, there are still many functions of brand recognition and the product decision-making process that happen online. Research by SharkNinja describes the processes that occur online and offline. By understanding where processes usually occur, companies can anticipate consumer needs and draw them all the way through the pipeline to closing the sale and beyond.
“Wannacry” was a recent ransomware attack that victimized hundreds of thousands of merchants globally. It exploited a vulnerability in Microsoft operating systems, which has since been resolved although the malware continues to spread through retailers systems via two methods:
The effects of this attack were devastating for the infected merchants in terms of financial loss, reduced consumer trust and the loss of confidential data. All merchants, whether or not they were targets of the attack, can benefit from adopting security measures and best practices to protect their sensitive information and bolster their systems against potential threats in the future.
Mobile pay is going to become the new way to pay. Consumers, especially those under 35 years old, appreciate the convenience and speed of paying with a phone. With over three-quarters of the US using smartphones, 77 percent to be exact, consumers rely on their phones more than ever for the completion of day-to-day tasks. While a person may not always carry a credit card or cash on them, you can be sure that they have their phone in their pocket or hand. Mobile payment acceptance is an important and forward-thinking strategy for business growth today.
Several distinct benefits come as a result of mobile payments. The first tier of advantages come with all near-field communication (NFC) payment acceptance, such as Apple Pay. The next level is for those companies that choose to invest in the creation of a mobile app.
“Unified Commerce” is the new buzzword of retail. Simply put, it means that consumers want their in-store and online transactions to flow seamlessly. According to a new survey by Ayden, in-store experiences are still vital to consumers, but they would like them to complement their activities online. In fact, 63 percent of the 2,000 participants said that they would spend more if services were delivered to them such as: buy online and return in-store, mobile payments, payment method recall, and seamless transaction lookup.
