What is a Payment Gateway?
A payment gateway allows a merchant to accept payment without a physical card (or check) present. Most gateway services are used through an integration with an ecommerce platform. However, many brick-and-mortar businesses also need to process a debit card, credit card or echeck payment when the transaction is not in person. The online payment gateway, through a virtual terminal feature, enables a business to take orders by phone or by mail by keying in a customer’s credit card information. Gateways also allow merchants to invoice customers via email and set up payment pages online.

Storing Customer Data
As a merchant, you can use the tools in an online payment gateway to access an up to date list of your customers and their orders. This can allow you to implement loyalty programs and leverage data for other marketing campaigns. Accessing customer order information quickly is crucial in providing excellent customer service as well.
A secure online payment gateway is also key for storing customer payment selections and credit card information to enable subscription or other periodic payment options. Learn more about the benefits of recurring billing programs.
