Frequently asked questions

What are payment gateways?

A payment gateway processes online payments, authenticating and safely passing cardholder data among the parties within the transaction.

Why is having multiple gateways important?

Multiple online payment gateways can increase the success rate of transaction processing by offering alternatives to customers. If one of your payment gateways is experiencing a low success rate or downtime, an alternative is available. Different gateways support different payment methods and currencies, so having multiple gateways fits into a global strategy. In addition, some customers will simply prefer one gateway over another, such as if they already have an account set up there (e.g., PayPal, Google Pay).

How do I select a payment gateway?

There are many factors to consider when selecting a payment gateway, including cost, currencies accepted, types of payment methods accepted, and countries of operation. Check out 4 insider secrets about payment gateways.

Do I need a payment gateway?

Without a payment gateway in the online payment process, fraudsters can easily access customer card information. If compromised, it can expose your business to fraud and chargebacks.

How do payment gateways secure my customer data?

A payment gateway protects the sensitive payment data using data encryption. The gateway follows several strict procedures for securing data that are defined by the PCI-DSS compliance. There are other security protocols payment gateways use as well, including tokenization and 3DS2.
