How Does Mobile Payment Processing Work?
There are a number of steps involved with processing a mobile credit or debit card transaction:
Step 1: User Initiates Online Payment Via Mobile Phone
The user logs in to one of YapStone’s payment solutions on a mobile device with the intention of paying rent, HOA dues, vacation home rental charges, inn charges or a church donation. After selecting credit card or debit card as the method of payment the user provides information such as name, credit or debit card information, and billing address, and then submits payment.
Step 2: YapStone to Payment Processor
YapStone sends the transaction details to its payment processor using a dedicated link that’s monitored 24 x 7 to ensure phone payment processing without interruption.
Step 3: Payment Processor to Card Networks to Card Issuing Bank
The payment processor validates the payment details by sending them through the credit / debit card networks (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover) that then send them to the card issuing bank to be authorized.
Step 4: Card Issuing Bank
The user’s card-issuing bank approves/denies the transaction based on the card status and whether the transaction is within the cardholder’s credit limit.
Step 5: Payment Processor to Credit Card Networks to YapStone
Assuming payment is approved, the user is charged by the card issuer who sends the funds to the card networks minus fees to cover costs such as credit risk and rewards. The card networks send the transaction-approved status back to the payment processor, which in turn informs YapStone who passes on the funds, less the applicable fees.
Step 6: YapStone to User
YapStone’s informs the user if the transaction is approved or denied via the mobile device interface. If paymentis denied, YapStone’s payment gateway informs the mobile site or app and because the card issuer did not authorize the transaction, no further action is taken.
Step 7: YapStone to Merchant
Lastly, YapStone transfers funds to the merchant’s bank account. Funds are normally received in 1-2 business days. Usually a receipt is emailed to the user, payment notifications are sent to the merchant, and detailed YapStone merchant reports update in real-time. These include the Transaction Activity Report, Batch Reconciliation Report and Transaction Summary Report.
*Not all mobile payment processing follows this flow. This is just one possible scenario from several options offered by YapStone.
