Do you currently accept credit cards?
Using a secure payment gateway to accept major credit cards is a fast and easy method of processing. A website can be set up to accept credit card payments by connecting the online shopping cart to a secure payment gateway. However, online payment gateways are not just for e-commerce. Both Authorize.Net and Converge boast detailed transaction records and reports that standalone terminals cannot offer and can be used in lieu of a standalone terminal. In addition, online payment gateways will not become obsolete like credit card terminals because Authorize.Net and Converge are upgradeable. These solutions are also suitable for merchants who wish to take credit card payments from anywhere with an internet connection. With an online payment gateway, you can conduct transactions through the Internet without installing software. As long as you have internet access you can run transactions directly from your PC.
