Empowering Tomorrow’s Payments: Adapting to ‘Consumer Duty’ Legislation within your contact centre with PCI Pal
As the world of payments continues to evolve, the need for secure and trustworthy transactions becomes paramount. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) recognises this importance and has introduced the ‘Consumer Duty’ legislation to safeguard consumers’ interests in the ever-changing landscape of merchant and consumer payments.
The ‘Consumer Duty’ legislation comes into force today, July 31st, and we view the legislation as a catalyst for progress in creating greater trust within the financial services industry. As a leading provider of secure payment solutions, PCI Pal has taken a proactive approach to the ‘Consumer Duty’ legislation, offering advanced tools and technologies to help merchants and consumers adapt to the changing payment environment.
This legislation will introduce higher standards across the sector, and we view this as an opportunity for businesses to align with the needs of customers more closely.
Understanding the ‘Consumer Duty’ Legislation
The ‘Consumer Duty’ legislation, introduced by the FCA, aims to empower consumers and enhance their confidence in making payments. It places an obligation on financial services firms to act in the best interest of their customers and provide them with products and services that are suitable for their needs. The legislation encourages transparency, fairness, and accountability in the financial industry, ensuring consumers are well-informed and protected throughout the payment process.
PCI Pal’s Proactive Response
