What is an Online Payment Gateway?

By Jun 28, 2021 No Comments

A payment gateway is an e-commerce service that processes payments for stores. A payment gateway is a secure way of accepting payment online. Payment gateways facilitate these transactions by transferring key information between payment portals such as web-enabled mobile devices/websites and the front end processor/bank.

Payment gateways fulfil a vital role in the e-commerce transaction process, authorizing the payment between merchant and customer.

There are various payment gateways available but one of the best in South Africa is Payfast, which we will discuss more in-depth later in the article.
