As travel agency owners, you know how convenient credit card payments are.
You also know how big a boost it is to your business when your customers can pay immediately over the phone.
But you must be PCI DSS compliant to do this, which costs TIME and MONEY.
Furthermore, what many businesses often do when taking credit card details over the phone is pause the recording and resume it at the end of the payment. However, this does not make them compliant and the risk of non compliance with the risk of loss of service or a fine is still high.
Currently, all solutions available to small businesses to be PCI DSS compliant are very expensive. Luckily we have the technology, taking you out of 'scope', reducing the pain and associated costs of PCI DSS regulation when taking phone payments.
Understandably, customers are wary of giving their personal details over the phone. With our solution, your client would feel more safe and secure as they wouldn’t need to disclose their credit card information to your representative.
Our solution allows your company to be more time efficient as agents will be able to process more transactions safely.
Security and privacy for your clients. Efficiency for your agents.
This is what we offer.

How Our Payment Portal Works
Travel agents will take a credit card payment over the phone as they normally would. They will stay on the phone with the client throughout the payment giving guidance as needed.
However, the key difference is that the agent will not hear the customer’s primary account number (PAN) and their card verification value number (CVV code). These numbers will be entered by the client using their phone’s keypad and safely processed by our PCI compliant network. At the end of a successful transaction, the agent will see a token on screen that can be easily pasted in your company's CRM.
The benefits of following this PCI DSS compliant process are:
- your business is out of scope, with all credit card information staying outside your office
- significantly reduces the number of requirements in the PCI questionnaire (from over 360 to approximately 15)
- your customers will feel more secure
Taking secure payments over the phone has never been so simple.
The Problem and the Solution
At Adooa we select state of the art technology to make running your business more simple.
Travel agencies take payments over the phone so your clients can pay for holidays, hotels and flights.
All information processed must be compliant.
The biggest risk? Losing customers forever.
- Your company may face big fines if you are not compliant.
- You may not be able to take credit card payments anymore.
- Higher costs for compliance/processing on future payments.
- Liability on possible mishandling of user's data.
- Legal costs for dealing with fraud.
Complying with PCI regulations with a traditional solution, means that you must invest in:
1. A secure IT infrastructure: reducing the risk of fraud and secure your customers’ data.
2. Internal quality control processes: protecting confidential data at all times.
3. Ongoing training: monitoring compliance by all employees and managers.
Our solution makes your travel agency out of scope for PCI-DSS purposes in three simple steps..
The agent enters a secure website to process credit card transactions. While on the phone with the agent, the customer enters the long number and CVV code on their phone’s keypad.
Once the client has finished entering the numbers, all details are sent securely to the Payment Service Provider and not shown to the agent.
Once the transaction has been completed the agent will see a token on the screen that can be pasted into an email or CRM.
The main benefits of using our technology and being PCI compliant:
1. Time saved
2. Reduced costs
3. Happier Customers
4. No need to replace existing equipment or phones

Why do you need to care?
The importance of managing customers’ personal data has increased over the past 12 months since GDPR regulations came into force. The penalties for lack of management are increasing as regulators gain control and are able to issue fines or remove services while credit card fraud soars.
It’s now more important than ever to stay on the right side of regulations.

How do you process payments?
Adooa's solution doesn't require you to share any confidential data with the call centre employee, instead users are able to type their details on a key pad which the agent cannot see. All data is confidential and the agent can still process payments with ease.
