Did you know that you can keep your customers happy by offering convenient ways to make online payments?

Today’s customers are more confident than ever about making online purchases. If your business does not accept online payments, you could be missing out on lucrative sales opportunities.

How online payment processing works

Online payments processing works in a similar way to making purchases in-store. When your customer enters their card, 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. Our PCI-compliant (Payment Card Industry) online payment solutions cover a range of flexible products that are easy to manage and integrate seamlessly with lots of different accounting, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and business management tools.
