Tips and Tricks

  • The customer's zip code is required for credit card sales (but not for cash sales)
  • The zipcode must match what the bank or credit card company has on file with the cardholder or the sale will be declined
  • The customer's billing address is not required
  • Collecting the customer's address is a nice-to-have (when you're not busy)
  • During busy times, just collect First Name, Last Name, Zip Code and Email Address
