Understanding payment gateway integration

You could save your business time and money, and improve your customer's experience with an integrated payment gateway from Sage.

What is payment gateway integration?

Payment gateway integration is how your business’s payment solution communicates with other software applications to accept payments. The more services you integrate with, the more features and payment options you will be able to offer your customers.

Payment gateway integration goes beyond just offering more convenience to your customers. It allows you to share information with a wide variety of business software apps, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), invoicing, and accounting tools. 

This can help you to reduce manual data entry, streamline your workflow, and make your business more efficient.

How does it work?

Different software applications ‘talk’ to each other using application programming interfaces, or APIs. In simple terms, APIs are an intermediary that allow two applications to share data with each other easily, in a format that both can understand.

Your payment gateway solution uses an API to sync up and integrate with the other software you use. In addition to passing data back and forth, you can add new functionality and options to your customer experience, from customised fields to more advanced shopping carts.

Our payment solutions allow you to easily set up additional features including 3-D secure authentication, tokens, and repeat payments. 

What a payments gateway integration means for your business

Better customer experience
The more seamless your purchasing process is, the happier your customers will be and the more likely they are to return in future.  Extra functionality like auto-tabbing between fields and easily editing their shopping cart might seem basic, but your customers will notice if it is missing.
Improved tracking and reporting
Integrate your payment gateway directly with your accounting software to better track payments in and out of your business. Each transaction is automatically uploaded into your accounting software and made traceable for budgeting and record-keeping. 
Reduced human error
Integrating your payment gateway with your other software applications saves time on data entry and cuts down on human error. Instead of manually typing the same information into two or more different systems, the data is shared seamlessly between applications.
