DGP: Taking payments online

15 November, 2017, 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Learn how to successfully integrate online payments into your business.  This seminar demystifies online payments by explaining technical jargon in a simple language.

Taking payments online can be transformational for any business.  This seminar will explore and teach you the key concepts to consider when using online payments.  These include security, fraud protection and  buyer experience as well as explaining provider choices and associated costs.

Explained using simple terminology, this seminar will provide you with a greater understanding of how to make the right decision for your business.  Moreover, it will be expertly delivered by Digital Growth Programme Consultant Rob Gregory.  Rob will examine and demonstrate payment provider examples.  In fact, he will be making test payments in real-time.  This will allow you to see and experience the entire process from purchase to when a payment appears in a provider’s admin system.
