How can I keep my business safe with Virtual Terminal?
The safety of your business is our priority. Because remote payments are considered riskier than in-person transactions, we may ask for a detailed receipt to minimize any chargebacks or financial losses that your business could incur. A good receipt should include credit card holder information, authorization from the card holder and an itemized list of the products/services provided. We don’t need this information at this time, but we may request it in the future.
