Virtual Terminal Agent Assisted Payments

Agent Assisted Payments by Cyprium is designed for companies who need to take payments over the phone but who don’t wish to spend time & money becoming PCIDSS compliant & removes your company from the scope of PCIDSS.


How does it work:

Various options available for the incoming number. Caller can dial a non-geographic number such as a 03 or 01/02 local presence number which we will allocate to you or port your current NGN to our platform or alternatively we can transfer your current main geographic number to our call management platform.

You answer the call in the normal way & enter the callers details apart from the long card, expiry date & security number in to the web-based portal which can easily accessed through a desktop, tablet or mobile device. At the point where you need to enter the long card number, you transfer the caller to our PCIDSS secure platform by means of a pre-configured transfer code on our platform so you don’t need to worry about reprogramming your phone system or require special handsets. The caller is requested to enter the long card number, expiry date & security number & played payment amount. The agent cannot hear the DTMF digits of the card details being entered or the caller reciting the numbers, but the caller can still hear the agent if there are any issues & the agent can see the transaction being processed on screen.

Once the caller has finished entering the card details, the agent & caller are reconnected. If necessary the agent can break out of the transaction at any time to deal with any problems.

The system submits the information to the payment gateway & advises both the merchant & the caller if the transaction is successful.


We can also include the additional features as part of the payment process.

    • Menu Options – Press one to make a payment, press two for sales etc etc
    • Call Queue – Music on hold, marketing messages, you are number 2 in the queue, please hold


For a list of all other call routing features please see our call management page.


Transactions & Reporting:

The Merchant Management System is designed to provide real time transaction information generated from the Payment Gateway. Payment information can be made available to you in real time, by email, daily data feed or viewed using a powerful browser based online portal. This system allows you to view Call Logs, Payments, Failed Payments, Abandonment Report and Process Refunds.
