How online payment processing works

Processing ecommerce payments is just like making purchases in-store. 

When a customer is ready to buy, they enter their card (or chequing) information online. Your payment gateway, or virtual terminal, then communicates with the card issuer (the customer's bank or card association). This is to make sure they have enough funds to cover the purchase. The online payment system also activates encrypted security measures, ensuring there’s no suspicious card activity.

Once cleared, funds transfer to your merchant services account. They’ll usually be released to your business bank account within two working days.

With Sage payment processing solutions, you can accept all online payments in one easy-to-manage system.

If you’re not sure how to get started accepting credit cards or payments online, don't worry. We offer a range of flexible, PCI-compliant ecommerce payment solutions  with competitive processing fees.  Plus, our products integrate seamlessly with many accounting, ERP, and business management tools.
