WHAT IS A PAYMENT GATEWAY?
The payment gateway is a technology used to accept purchases following an internet transaction, serving as an intermediary between the merchant's website and the acquiring bank. In other words, it passes information about the order from the dealer to the bank, authorises the credit or debit card and enables the transaction of payment.
Any time you complete the checkout form on the ecommerce store, providing your payment details for purchase, the gateway processes this information and transfers it to the bank you purchase. In addition, the use of encryption and tokenization for the security of financial data guarantees a safe exchange of information between consumers, merchants, payment networks, purchasers and issuers of banks.
Payment gateways serve as intermediaries close to the way POS networks do in physical establishments. They allow and accept digital transaction processes that require transactions to go forward, making it easier to buy digitally securely. Excluding a payment portal, e-commerce will not be able to accept digital credit cards.
HOW DOES A PAYMENT GATEWAY WORK? WHAT ARE ITS TYPICAL TRANSACTION PROCESSES?
When you've loaded your shopping cart with the items you intend to buy, you'll arrive at the register, which is when the payment process begins.
Step 1: A customer places an order
Step 2: Encryption of information and forwarding to merchant’s site
Step 3: Forwarding information from merchant’s site to the payment gateway
Step 4: Payment gateway sends transaction information to the payment processor
Step 5: Payment processor forwards transaction information to the card association
Step 6: The card association receives the authorization request
Step 7: Payment processor forwards this information to the payment gateway
Step 8: Payment gateway forwards it to the merchant website
Step 9: The payment gateway performs a process known as Settling
Step 10: Payment gateways also record your transactions
Amazingly, this whole procedure just takes a few seconds.
