Check Bank & Card Details
Successful electronic payments require precise, accurate bank account numbers, sort codes or credit and debit card numbers. But people make mistakes when reading them, writing them down or keying them in.
Some even try to delay payment or defraud by introducing deliberate errors.
Electronic Payment Data Validation
AFD’s banking solutions are designed to prevent delayed or permanently lost revenue, recovery costs, re-processing costs and the customer perception of incompetence and poor service.
Minimise Transaction Failure and Fraud
The best place to stop Direct Debit, Standing Order or Card transaction failure or fraud occurring is at the point where data is entered. Our BACS based solutions do this. They instantly check UK and Irish bank sort codes and account codes using the latest sophisticated banking algorithms and data.
Where an account is unlikely to take a Direct Debit, this is indicated. The user receives immediate feedback so that corrections can be made – on the website, in the call centre, in the administration team and even on the street
