How can I charge Virtual Credit Cards (VCC)

Payrexx offers the technical possibility to charge virtual credit cards (VCC) via the virtual terminal. To be able to use this function, you must consider the following aspects:

  1. Select a payment provider* that supports VCC charging. Contact the payment provider beforehand. 
  2. Change the merchant category code (MCC) at your payment provider to travel industry. 
  3. Open the virtual terminal, enter the card information and execute the payment. 

It may happen that the payment is rejected because your customer uses the card for other payments (far away from you) and the card issuer (issuer) rejects the payment due to an attempted fraud. 

We therefore recommend that you send the payment request to your customer with a pay link. This means that you no longer have to charge any virtual credit cards.
