As the popularity of online shopping is rapidly increasing and the market place continuously evolving, eCommerce entrepreneurs are tasked with ensuring the customer journey is as easy and simple as possible, whilst ensuring maximum security and compliance at all times.
Accepting payments is a crucial element of eCommerce, but must be handled with caution to avoid one of many potential pitfalls.
We can help you in selecting the right payment gateway for your current and future needs, and ensure that it is integrated successfully, securely and with the best usability for your customers.
What is payment gateway integration?
Payment gateway integration is required to accept payments online in the form of credit or debit cards. There are two forms of integration, CPI (Cardholder Payment Interface) and API (Application Programmable Interface). The CPI integration redirects your users to the merchant bank, where your customer completes the credit card information and is then re-directed to your website to conclude the order. The second form is direct integration using an API. There are positives and negatives to each approach, your requirements dictate which path we recommend.

More simple to configure, security requirements are managed by the third party merchant, therefore you do not require full PCI DSS compliance as no sensitive payment data is stored
