Once the consumer clicks pay, they’re taken to a payment page. This then connects to the payment gateway, which creates a payment request and sends it to the acquirer.
Clicking ‘pay’ is central to each sale, ultimately governing a business’ success. Yet many merchants are unaware of how that money makes its way across the ether. Each and every online transaction involves lots of parties working in unison to get the funds from the shopper to the merchant bank account quickly and securely.
Having a deeper understanding of these processes helps businesses refine their operations for a better customer experience, and allows them to step in at the right part of the process if there’s an issue, reducing disruption and costs.
The institutions shown above are involved in the payment process. Your bank, the technical gateway, the acquirer, the various payment systems, etc.
