Grange Builders Providers, a member of the HomeValue group, is a Dublin based builders merchants supplying building materials, tools for hire and other household products. They provide their customers with a free same-day delivery service in the greater Dublin area.
Grange Builders Providers holds business accounts for many of their customers and they also take orders over the phone for one-off deliveries and from regular customers who don’t yet have an account.
They needed to move from a cash-on-delivery to a pre-payment model due to the unacceptable risk of their drivers carrying cash. However, their over-the-phone transactions still carried risks, particularly for high-value deliveries to remote locations, so a more secure solution was required – one that didn’t get in the way of new sales.
Grange is now using Prommt to secure payment for all of their remote sales. Prommt works seamlessly with their existing card acquirer and allows Grange to continue engaging with customers over the phone. However, rather than taking card numbers they now send a simple payment request link to the customer using Prommt’s SMS and email “pay-by-link” facility.
The customer enters their card details on a secure, branded payment form which is linked to their current card acquirer and includes 3D Secure. Grange no longer needs to take customer card details – this eliminates their exposure to potential fraud and ensures data protection compliance.
