    Hey guys,

    So those of you doing cold calling and selling only via the phone, how do you handle payments? Is there any specific service which lets you accept credit/debit card payments on the phone without telling your clients to go to your website and pay there? Before you say Google it, I already have and noted some companies, but I haven't got any past experiences with any of them so don't really know if they are legit or not. Any suggestions are welcome, thank you!

    The business that will handle these kind of phone sales is going to be based on a third-world country (Albania) for a couple of reasons such as taxes, cheap labor for outsourcing, less strict regulations, etc... However, the targeted businesses will be mostly in US and UK. By targeted, I mean the businesses that are going to get cold called and sold services such as web design/re-design, social media, etc... Any recommendations?

    I forgot to mention that I also checked the Virtual Terminal service that PayPal offers, but it is not offered in all countries. And most of the other terminals/services I found online are for the UK. Any merchant processor that accepts phone payments and is global ?
    Thanks!

    Have you looked into other merchants? What about Payza? Or Payoneer?

    Yes, they don't specifically accept payments over the phone, or at least it's not mentioned in their websites.

    Set up some sort of LLC in Albania and travel to the UK or maybe some country with good reputation among the banking system and open an account, you could simply request your clients to wire transfer the funds, also you should look into Albanian banks that offer intermediary banks in the us.

    best of luck mate

    I can simply request my clients to open their email, navigate to my website and pay there with their CC online, which is way easier and cheaper too than a wire transfer. The problem is I want to take their details over the phone (while they are still on "buying" mode) and complete the payment myself via a Virtual Terminal. Anyway thanks for trying to help!
