Choosing the right payment gateway for your ecommerce business

Payment gatepages

Money is much like a river – it should flow. Without intermediaries between merchants and buyers, this won’t happen on a large scale. So what is a payment gateway, and what do they do?

Payment gateways are simply technology that merchants use to accept debit or credit card purchases from customers. These transactions happen either via physical card machines and wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay in brick-and-mortar stores or online stores. They help merchants initiate payments for various payment methods.

In other words, payment gateways are systems through which your customers transfer funds to you..

Let’s do the transaction tango

Much like a dance, a transaction follows certain steps once it’s initiated. When a customer enters their payment details, the payment gateway sends the customer’s information to the acquirer or payment processor, who sends the request to the issuing or customer’s bank. If the issuing bank approves the transaction, they debit the customer’s account and transfer the funds to the merchant’s (or acquiring) bank account. Simple isn’t it?😊

Different ecommerce payment options

Ecommerce stores can choose from a wide variety of online payment options, depending on what they need it for and how they plan to use it. Some merchants need to integrate the payment gateway into their own stores to process payments while others prefer Hosted Payment Pages that take care of the payment information and security.
