MOTO processing an acronym for Mail Order/Telephone Order credit card processing, and is a type of card-not-present (CNP) credit card processing service offered by Merchant Lynx Services. Mail Order/Telephone Order (MOTO) transactions do not require the physical presence of the credit card, just the credit card details, and, sometimes, the personal details of the cardholder.
As the name suggests MOTO credit card processing is conducted by e-mail, fax, and/or telephone. This means that your customers will have to either send you the merchant an online order, a fax order, or phone order.
Merchant Lynx can make taking orders over the phone or by fax simple. You can also accept credit cards for your ecommerce sites, either by punching the orders in a local box or by having the transaction automatically sent to your bank account.
