WHAT IS A PAYMENT GATEWAY?
A payment gateway is an ecommerce application service provider that authorizes credit card payments for various entities including online retailers, e-businesses, and traditional brick and mortar stores. Payment gateways facilitate the transfer of information between payment portals and front-end processors or acquiring banks. A payments gateway is like a physical point of sale terminal that you might find in a typical retail outlet.
Businesses use a payment gateway to protect customers’ credit card details. This is done through a process of encrypting sensitive information to ensure that it’s passed securely between the customer and the merchant, as well as between merchants and payment processors.
