What are the benefits of using SOTpay within my business?
Eliminate Fraud Related Chargebacks:
In 2021, there was £524.5M lost to fraud on UK issued cards and over 2.8 million reports of fraud in Card Not Present (CNP) channels.
What are you doing to protect your organisation, employees and customers?
SOTpay facilitates additional authentication methods in the Card Not Present (CNP) channels, shifting the chargeback liability to the card issuers, consequently eliminates fraud related chargebacks and reducing cost.

Reduce Processing Costs:
SOTpay is a cloud-based solution which supports a swift and cost-effective deployment and our flexible payment options offer either a 'pay as you go' or 'pre-purchase' of credits.
Because SOTpay authenticates that the genuine cardholder is processing the transaction, it can significantly reduce your merchant processing fees, by converting 'non-secure' transactions into 'secure, authenticated, PCI compliant' transactions, which are often processed at a lower rate.

Simplify PCI DSS Compliance:
SOTpay uses unique technology to facilitate a simplified approach to address the complexity of PCI DSS compliance for telephone and other Card Not Present payments. SOTpay removes all sensitive card data from the merchant environment, which takes the environment completely out of scope for PCI DSS.
Our approach has seen us awarded with a number of PCI awards.

Open Banking Capabilities:
Gala Technology have invested and integrated Open Banking into their payment platform, which enables organisations to send payment requests in a number of channels, allowing the customer to make an account-to-account payment in seconds.

Cloud Based Technology:
SOTpay is a cloud-based technology so additional hardware is not required and existing telephony solutions do not need to be altered, so consequently deployment is swift.
Our cloud-based portal requires no integration, allowing you to operate and generate secure and compliant payment requests on any compatible internet-enabled device, meaning that business can take Card Not Present payments without the need of website.

Multi-Channel Capabilities:
With the continued growth of Social Media platforms and web chat applications, customers are looking to engage with businesses via a whole host of channels.
SOTpay enables you to take secure and PCI compliant transactions in live time, regardless of where or how your customer is communicating with you, enhancing their service experience.

Protect Your Reputation:
SOTpay ensures that sensitive card data does not enter the merchant environment, which gives reassurance to customers and eliminates the risk of payment card data breaches, which in turn protects the merchant from reputational damage and expense associated with a data breach.
