We enjoyed this highly thought-out piece making a case for automated payments as opposed to manually collecting and storing your clients data. Here’s our favorite quote:
I was recently on a call for one of my businesses, with a salesperson from a company who acts as a 3rd party reputation or trust verification system. She asked what set my company apart from others in the same industry, and I highlighted the way we handle customer payment information. You see, most other businesses in that particular industry manually collect credit card numbers, and systematically run customer credit cards at a set interval. After explaining this to the sales rep and listening to her spiel, she asked for a credit card number over the phone! In fact, she indicated that was the only way to complete the transaction. In that moment I felt like Gordon Ramsey when he routinely bemoaned (with a British accent) “I could die on the back of that risotto!”
