The easy-to-use Interactive Voice Response (IVR) payment service by iCheckGateway.com is a boon to customer convenience. Allowing customers to make payments over the phone using their touch-tone or mobile phone, IVR supports both ACH and credit card payments in one platform. In fact, there’s no need to even speak with a live representative; IVR allows the user to interact by keypad or voice recognition. And, without the need of an internet connection, payments are submitted instantly and securely—the platform reduces your PCI scope, since transactions pass through a provided web portal, instead of storing and transmitting sensitive data within your system.
The IVR payments platform is highly customizable depending on your specific business needs. Whether you want a simple or advanced interface for your customers is entirely up to you. IVR comes with options to create a bare-bones experience, empowering customers to submit payments without much fluff, along with options to create a more complex system with more robust functionality. With this option, customers can take advantage of features like reviewing their account information and history in real-time, or contemplating donation information. With multilingual functionality—IVR features both English and Spanish language support by default, with options to expand to other language support as needed.
Security is something you don’t have to worry about with IVR payments. iCheckGateway.com deploys and hosts a turn-key system, which ensures secure transactions, reduces PCI scope, and processes all cardholder information through our online gateway, enabling all data to be stored outside of your system, all while maintaining compliance standards. This is available 24/7/365, accepting ACH and credit card payments without the need for an internet-connected phone.
Unlike some over-the-phone payment systems, payments with IVR are as flexible as they come. Allowing both ACH, eCheck, and credit card transactions, customers have multiple options to pay in a way that is comfortable for them, ensuring that payments come through to you more quickly.
