You must choose the right payment processor when you own a business that takes credit and debit cards online. An online payment processor is the one that handles the heavy lifting of transactions from recording the sale to sending you a billing statement and working with your bank to make sure you are paid.

Payment gateways or PoS terminals are used when a buyer purchases something on your website or in-store. The gateway encrypts the data to keep it secure and then passes it to the processor that processes payments, which in turn, transmits it to customer’s card network. The card network then contacts the bank of the customer to determine if they have enough money to purchase the item. If the bank is able to approve the purchase then the card issuer transfers money from the account to the merchant’s bank. The payment processor will transmit this information back to the merchant’s website or PoS terminal, which will inform the customer that their payment was successful.

When choosing a processor, consider factors like security and user-friendliness, and compatibility with the existing systems. Look for a processor that includes APIs or plugins which can seamlessly integrate with your ecommerce system or POS. You should also evaluate the checkout experience of your customers and your team’s transaction management and reporting experience. Make sure you are aware of the contract terms and how easy it is to switch providers in the future.
