How to Take Payments Online: Discover how to successfully integrate online payments into your business.

Taking payments online can be transformational for any business. This seminar will explore and teach you the key concepts that need to be considered when using online payments such as security, fraud protection, buyer experience as well as explaining provider choices and associated costs.

Explained using simple terminology this seminar will provide you with a greater understanding on how to make the right decision for your business. Delivered by Digital Growth Programme, Consultant Rob Gregory, he will examine and demonstrate payment provider examples - making test payments in real-time allowing you to see and experience the entire process from purchase to a payment appearing in a provider’s admin system.

  • Security – Find out how to make your online payments secure by understanding HTTP and SSL. Security can be a scary subject but this seminar highlights what can be done to ensure payment security and install buyer trust.

  • Buyer experience – Consider how your customers will engage with your buying process and what payment provision you need in place to design an easy to use and frictionless payment flow. Payment technology must be implemented in usable ways – make sure you consider this before you make a platform choice you are stuck with. 

  • What I need to get started – Find out how to ready your business for online payments. Bank accounts, merchant accounts, accounting processes and fulfillment considerations are all covered.
