Today’s customers are more confident in making online purchases than ever. If your business doesn’t accept online payments, you could be missing out on lucrative selling opportunities.

How online payment processing works

Online payment processing works similarly to making purchases in-store. When your customer enters their card or chequing information, your gateway or virtual terminal communicates with the card issuer (your customer's bank or card association) to make sure they have enough funds to cover the purchase. The process also activates encrypted security measures to ensure there’s no suspicious activity on the card being used.

Once that’s cleared, the funds are transferred to your merchant services account until they are released to your business bank account, usually within two business days.

With a streamlined payment processing system, you can accept online payments from all your customers in one easy-to-manage system.

But what if you need help accepting credit cards or accepting payments online? Don't worry. PCI-compliant online payment solutions cover a range of flexible products that are easy to manage and integrate seamlessly with lots of different accounting, ERP, and business management tools.
