How do I process a telephone order through my EFTPOS machine?

How do I make transaction when the card is not present?

Making a purchase without the card present is known as Mail Order, Telephone Order (MOTO).

This functionality can be enabled for merchants who process telephone or mail order sales. MOTO should only be used in situations where cardholder authorisation is given for the transaction and the credit card is not physically present to be used at the terminal.

Getting started

Before starting a MOTO transaction, please double check that you have this functionality enabled.  You can do this by calling Paymark on 0800 729 627 (you will need to have your terminal ID handy). If you do not have the MOTO functionality, please call your merchant bank* and request for this to be enabled.
