What are some card acceptance best practices?

  1. Encourage card payments through the EMV reader. It’s the most secure way to process a transaction.
  2. Always attempt to verify the cardholder’s identity. This helps prevent fraud.
  3. When processing “card not present” transactions, make sure the billing ZIP code and shipping ZIP code match.
  4. If you’re processing recurring payments, establish a written agreement with your customer approving the charges.
