What is a payment gateway?
A payment gateway lets businesses add online shopping to their website in a secure way.
Acting as a middleman between your business (the merchant) and the customer, a payment gateway validates your customers' card details, checks they have the funds and passes them to an acquirer to process the payment.

Whether you need a shopping basket, a secure API or a hosted form, we have the flexible and affordable online payment solution for you.
