Payment Gateway Service
SmarterPay partners with Opayo to provide customers with secure online payments.
When you pay for a purchase online, behind the seemingly simple process, there is a myriad of key interactions between a handful of organisations that allow your payment to be processed. Although the transaction couldn’t occur if any of these processes were incomplete, a key and vital component that must be especially paid attention to is the payment gateway.
The payment gateway serves as the link between the consumers bank account and the merchant’s bank account. It communicates whether or not a payment has been declined or accepted and accommodates the transfer of funds between the two bank accounts.
With card payments becoming more and more prevalent and showing little signs of slowing down, if you would like to accept card payments online as a business, you’ll need a merchant bank account and a subscription to a payment gateway. SmarterPay can help set you up with both!
