What is a payment gateway?
A payment gateway is a merchant service for online retailers and traditional businesses with an online presence.
It’s how you accept payments from your online customers. A payment gateway is the equivalent of a physical terminal—it accepts and processes payments within a secure environment.
Why does your business need a payment gateway?
Alternative payment methods (other than debit and credit) will account for up to 59% of all transactions in 2017. It’s a fast-moving world, and your business needs to adapt to reflect these changes. What was a traditional form of payment yesterday is no longer. Payment gateways allow you to offer a variety of payment options, including:
- Virtual terminals
- POS terminals
