FAQs

What if there's an unusually high amount of requests that are timing out?

These are requests where the Customer did not take action on the request. If you see an unusually high number of requests timing out, ask yourselves these questions:

  • Is there a correlation between the dollar amount versus the number of payments timing out? Perhaps engaging with the Customer and providing positive feedback on the purchase could encourage the Customer to complete the sale.
  • Do you notice more time-outs on specific Agents than others? Talk to them and try to understand why they think this is happening.
