How eCommerce Processing Works

  • The credit card information is processed through our secure payment gateway. Customer card details are validated for security and available funds.
  • Our payment gateway relays the transaction results back to you and your customer.
  • The customer's issuing bank sends the funds to your bank who then deposit it into your business account (settlement).
