RICS>PAY: DUPLICATE DETECTION

OVERVIEW

Duplicate Detection provides security for retailers against charging customer credit cards multiple times.  This feature automatically detects when an identical charge is attempted on a customer credit card during the same day.  Retailers have an option to automatically decline the duplicate transaction or allow the cashier to approve a duplicate transaction with this feature.
