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.
