MOTO payments

How to make a MOTO payment with Tap-on-Phone.


This article outlines how to activate and use MOTO (‘Mail Order / Telephone Order’) functionality within Tap-on-Phone. MOTO allows you to take a payment by manually entering a customer’s card details, and can be particularly useful for telephone-based payments and similar.

As the merchant, you are responsible for obtaining the customer’s permission before using their card details to make a MOTO payment

Activating MOTO

MOTO functionality can be activated during the initial setup and activation of the ‘ | Terminal’ application. The below screenshot illustrates this.

If you choose not to activate MOTO at his time, it can be activated later from within the app, without needing to start the setup process again
