What’s the deal with virtual card payments?

Thanks to the internet (and a whole bunch of technology that’s way too complicated to explain here), shoppers are able to pay for goods and services virtually. Also known as online payments, virtual card payments have revolutionised the way we shop and do business.

For business owners, virtual payments make buying and doing business, easier and safer than ever.

Convenience factor aside, virtual payments eliminate several risk factors associated with in-person payments

To paraphrase author Aldous Huxley, we live in a strange new world, where one virus, in particular, has upended life as we know it.  The resultant increased germ vigilance also means a growing distaste for cash, shem.

Add opportunistic criminals to the mix and you’ve got a rock-solid case for using virtual payments as an alternative to cash.

As if that wasn’t enough, online payments are super convenient, enabling shoppers to pay from their device of choice – no sanitiser needed.
