Payment Gateway Integration Service
A payment gateway allows your online store to accept credit card payments from customers. Payment gateways cost money and charge per transactions, and there are a lot of them to choose from. Picking the right gateway can help save you money and keep your business running smoothly. Once you've chosen your payment gateway, integrating it into your online store software is a snap. The payment gateway processes the customer's credit card information by sending the data to the gateway's web server, which then makes the sale and sends the confirmation back to the website. You can quickly integrate your gateway into your website's shopping cart software. Your web host or online shop software provider may provide payment gateway services that you can quickly implement on your suite. Check your website's control panel or your online shop's admin page to see if there are payment gateway options.
What Is a Payment Gateway?
There are a lot of different payment gateways out there, and they can get a bit confusing. Before you start looking, check which gateways your shopping cart software supports. Your shopping cart software's support site should have a list of compatible payment gateways. A payment gateway is an e-commerce application that authorizes payments for e-businesses, online retailers, bricks and clicks, or traditional brick and mortar businesses. It is the virtual equivalent of a physical point of sale terminal located in most retail outlets. Payment gateways encrypt sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, to ensure that information passes securely between the customer and the merchant.
How Do Payment Gateways Work?
A payment gateway facilitates the transfer of information between a payment portal (such as a website, mobile phone) and the Front End Processor or acquiring bank.
