Are your staff members taking credit card information over the phone? If they are, they could be putting your dealership at the risk of non-compliance with privacy laws, which could lead to fines and legal action.
What happens to those jotted down credit card numbers, printouts and faxes? Will they be shredded or just thrown out? Customers are concerned about what happens to their credit card information and want to ensure it isn’t easily viewed or stored, which can put them at risk for credit card fraud.
Within the privacy laws, the process for taking credit card information is stringent and can also be time-consuming. The credit card number must be filed in a secure location, either in a safe or under lock and key. Credit card numbers must not be stored electronically. Once the customer relationship is finished, the credit card number needs to be shredded. Are all these security steps taken at your dealership?
If you’ve answered ‘no’ then it’s time to rethink your process! Stay compliant with credit card privacy laws with a streamlined, automated secure payment process.
Mobile Cashier gives staff the power to create and send custom payment links to any customer by text or email, thus connecting them securely to your dealer-branded payment portal. Dealers can use it for collecting any type of payment, such as: service invoices, vehicle deposits, parts deposits, and even receivables collection. Customers can pay in seconds from any mobile or PC-based browser. No more faxes or giving credit card numbers over the phone, no more waiting, and zero security risks.
