Taking card payments into Flobot

When it comes to taking credit and debit card payments directly into the software, no-one does it better than Flobot.

What makes this such a great thing to do is that unlike taking a payment into a chip and pin machine or even a smart phone app like Zettle, the payment is badged directly to your customer and an instant receipt sent out to them - so no double entry because the information is already there.

Taking card payments is simple and secure. Flobot uses the industry standard gateway Sage Pay to process your customer payments. That means you can take payments online, over the telephone and even face to face.

Job done. Get paid instantly. Feels good, doesn't it?

It's never been easier to take payment. Flobot allows you to take payments from your customers over the telephone, and securely store the card details ready for when the job's done. Gone is the requirement for a field engineer to walk around with a hand-held payment terminal. You can take payment in the field or back at the office and most importantly reconcile that payment onto the customers account instantly - no more collecting card receipts.

Throw away your chip and pin terminal

Taking payment on a chip and pin device means paperwork - reconciling the payment with the customer's account is time consuming and prone to mistakes. With Flobot, there's no paperwork - your customer's card is charged instantly while your engineer is on site. Even better, payment data is stored against your customer's account so you never have to tie up payments with jobs - it's already done for you.

Immediate receipt to the customer

Flobot allows you to safely and securely store encrypted customer card details before the job has taken place meaning there's no need to chase customers for payments and issue invoices - especially for a reactive job. You can simply charge the card once the job has been completed by letting FieldNet do it for you, or letting your admin team process the card payment in one click. Simple and instant.

Sell more services

Just taken a payment? Now is the ideal time to offer your customer a promotional voucher for repeat custom or display your monthly deal. Flobot enables you to maximise business opportunities and sell more of your services by allowing you to build your own loyalty schemes and even build customised discount codes.
