Mail Order Telephone Order (MOTO) is a type of card-not-present (CNP) transaction in which services are paid and delivered via telephone, mail, fax, or internet communication. With the introduction of chip technology on most cards, there has been reduced fraud in “card present” transactions, but a corresponding increase in fraud in CNP transactions. The word stands for “mail order telephone order,” although those types of financial transactions are increasingly rare. MOTO has, therefore, become synonymous with any financial transaction where the entity taking payment does not physically see the card used to make the purchase.
