Payment Gateways

Payment Gateways Make It Easy for Online Shoppers to Buy

Online shoppers love the convenience of being able to make purchases with credit and debit cards. As a merchant, setting up a payment gateway and merchant account will allow you to accept credit card payments through your online store.

Payment gateways leverage a secure connection between your online store and Internet merchant account – allowing the exchange of purchase information. A merchant account is simply a contract with a bank to accept online credit card payments from your customers.
