Frequently Asked QuestionsWhy do I need a gateway?

You will need to create an account with the payment gateway, which you will use to authenticate all transactions that you send to the gateway. A payment gateway is the interface that allows an ecommerce transaction to flow from the cardholder/guest through the merchant’s website, to the payment processor/acquirer (who sends the authorization request and payment data to the issuing bank) and back.  It is the technology behind the scenes, enabling your website (or virtual terminal) to process payments.
