Payments in Vonage Contact Center

Depending on which features are enabled for your account, Vonage Contact Center allows you to take payments from customers in various ways:

Using ContactPad

If enabled, a payment button appears in ContactPad. An agent can click the payment button to start a secure payment session. The payment session is PCI-DSS compliant and provided by PCI Pal.

Two different payment session types are available:

  • Agent assist secure payments. Using an agent assist secure payment, the agent clicks a payment button in ContactPad during a call. The call is transferred to PCI Pal, a secure platform. The caller types their card details using their telephone keypad.
  • Digital secure payments. Using digital secure payments, the agent clicks a payment button in ContactPad during a call. The agent then sends a link to a payment page to the caller in an SMS message. The caller types their card details into a form on the payment page. The caller can make a payment using the payment link for up to 72 hours after the call is finished.

Using an interaction plan (self-service secure payments)

If enabled, you can create an interaction plan that takes payment details from a caller using their telephone keypad without connecting the caller to an agent. For more information, see IVR Secure Payments solution and Creating a call plan for the IVR Secure Payments solution.

Using Vonage's Payment API

If enabled, you can implement your own solution for taking payments during a call. For more information see Payments in ContactPad.
