Many times it has been seen that the customer faces difficulty while making payment. The problem could be anything ranging from gateway issue to connection problem. This can not only trigger cart abandonment but might also make the customer leave the website to never return back again. Prestashop virtual payment terminal will surely help you to avoid all this problem.
Let’s see this with an example to understand how this module can be helpful. Suppose a customer came on to your website of online shop with an intent to purchase items from here. He/she adds the product to the cart and proceed to checkout. But suddenly, while making the payment, the customer starts facing internet connectivity issue and fails to make the payment. Now, in this case, there are fair chances that you might lose this customer. Hence, in order to retain the sales and the customer, you can offer the customer to make the payment via virtual payment terminal.
This payment method will allow the customer to save the card details on the website. So that store owner can process the payment for the order himself afterward. The store owners can contact the customer with whatever medium deems fit to process the payment with the customer card details. Another very important setting in the configuration allows customers to choose the method to save card details of the customer. They can either choose to save all the details in the database or half in the database and receive another half via mail.
