How to process card payments
24th October 2022
So you’ve decided to install a contactless payment system into your fleet. It’s a great decision on many levels.
Amongst a myriad of other benefits, you’ll likely see an uptick in customers who appreciate the convenience and who probably do not carry physical money as we move further towards a cashless society.
You’ll save time on payment transactions, increase security by avoiding the need for your drivers to carry large sums of cash on their person and you’ll greatly decrease the chances of falling prey to counterfeit money.
But how does it all work?
As consumers, we’re used to regularly presenting our card to a reader in all manner of situations. We wait to hear the reassuring confirmation ‘beep’ of the reader and then go about our day without giving it a second’s thought.
However, as business owners and runners of a taxi and/or private hire fleet, we need a little more assurance that the payment has been processed and that the wider process is sound and reliable.
Here at iCabbi, we have it all in hand through dynamic, intuitive and industry-leading software, all backed up by our dedicated support staff.
Fast, technology-backed processing
Once a job is complete and payment is made by presenting a card to the pin pad (installed for free in within your fleet), the payment information immediately passes through directly to iCabbi’s fully-secure online systems and interacts automatically with the booking and card payment reports – all you need is Bluetooth.
No manual intervention or any process on behalf of the driver is required and this joined-up approach ensures the method of contactless payment is both effortless and secure for both your driver/firm and the customer.
