What is Voice Authorization?

Voice Authorization is when a Merchant makes a telephone call to obtain credit card authorization rather than using a terminal or credit card software.  The Merchant must, in addition to the voice authorization, submit the credit card information via telephone, terminal, or software to close out the transaction and transfer funds to their bank account.
