What is a Payment Gateway?

In order to take payments from customers online, you need a system embedded in your website or app to handle credit and debit card transactions. This is called your payment gateway.

This is a piece of software that links your digital basket to the merchant services provider who handles money received by your business. Your payment gateway encrypts data, then sends it to your bank or another financial organisation for verification. As soon as the transaction is authorised, your payment gateway is notified and the order process can be completed. Increasingly sophisticated

This software is becoming increasingly more advanced and the options are extensive. There are payment gateways that can handle an increasingly diverse range of types of transactions. This includes, for example, Apple Pay, electronic transfer of funds and Bitcoins.

Some e-commerce companies prefer a simple more straightforward payment gateway that fulfils all their basic transaction requirements without additional extras. Other enterprises want a more sophisticated piece of software, that can grow with them, offering the potential for future developments and additional services.
