Accepting Credit Cards
In general, there are two components required for you to receive payments from your customers in real-time over the internet:
1.) Merchant Account
A financial institution or bank account that is used by a merchant specifically for the purpose of collecting proceeds consumer bank account or credit card payment transactions. Your existing bank may be able to set you up with a merchant account, in which case, all you'll need is a payment gateway. If your bank can set you up with a merchant account, they will know how to work with Authorize.net.
2.) Payment Gateway
This service acts as the online facilitator of the transaction. It makes sure the funds are available, authorizes the charges and informs the credit card companies of the transactions. We have integrated our e-stores with the leading gateway, Authorize.net.
