Twilio <Pay> now enables PCI-Compliant contact center payment use cases with the launch of Agent Assisted <Pay>. Developers can build payment flows that allow agents to securely capture caller payment information during a voice conversation using the Agent Assisted <Pay> API. This launch extends Twilio’s existing support for IVR payments via our PCI DSS compliant Voice platform, <Pay> TwiML, and integrations with <Pay> connectors to Agent Assisted payments.
When leveraging the Agent Assisted <Pay> feature within their contact center (including Flex), agents control the payment flow and guide callers by requesting payment information one at a time (e.g., payment card number, expiration date, security code). Agents can continue to converse with callers but will not hear their DTMF, ensuring the security of the payment information. For additional details visit the Agent Assisted <Pay> blog post.
