You should choose the right payment processor if you run a business accepting credit and debit cards online. A payment processor online is what handles the bulk of the transaction that includes everything from capturing the sale to sending you a bill statement and working with your bank to make sure you are paid.

Payment gateways or PoS terminals are used when a buyer buys something from your site or in-store. The gateway encodes data to ensure its security and sends it to a processor that then transfers it to the card network of the customer. The card network then checks with the customer’s bank to determine if they have enough money to purchase the item. If the bank accepts the purchase, the card issuer will transfer the funds from their account to the bank that is owned by the merchant. The payment processor will transmit this message to the merchant site or PoS terminal. This will inform the customer of their successful payment.

When choosing a processor, think about security as well as ease of use and compatibility with other systems. Find a processor that includes APIs or plugins which seamlessly integrate with your e-commerce system or POS. You should also look at the checkout experience of your customers and your team’s report and transaction management experience. Not least, ensure that you understand the terms of the contract and how it will be easy to change providers in the future.
