Some businesses are organized in such a way that they need a payment gateway in order to accept payments. But what exactly is a payment gateway? Essentially, a payment gateway is any software that facilitates the communication of transaction information. These gateways come into play most often with online business who need to accept card-not-present transactions. The payment gateway enables the online store to authorize cards and accept payments.
One of the leading payment gateways in the country is Authorize.net. In order to use this technology, you must also have a processor – or merchant services account – in place. Authorize.net offers two options upon sign-up: you can opt to get the gateway by itself or choose to bundle the gateway with their merchant services package. Many merchants choose the second option simply for convenience, but this is not always the best choice.
Fattmerchant uses Authorize.net as a gateway for our processing, but without any of the extra fees and high markups. So if you’re already enjoying an Authorize.net account but want a more affordable solution, consider Fattmerchant.
