What is a payment gateway?

Imagine you’re about to buy a new pair of shoes in a boutique. As you swipe your credit card, the software in the physical terminal processes the transaction, notifying the store attendant if the transaction was completed successfully or not. For online stores, the idea is the same except the payment gateway is the software that processes the transaction. In order to establish a secure payment gateway on your site, you must first create an online merchant account through which you will be able to accept processed online payments, receive daily settlements, and enjoy lower fees. eWAY can do all of this for you! 

What is a third party processor and how does it differ from a payment gateway?

Third party processors, such as PayPal, are popular among newer online businesses because they don’t require merchants to set up a merchant account. The initial setup seems faster, as you do not need to setup a direct online merchant account. However, they do not settle funds daily as there is often a delay and the transactional fees are much steeper compared to those charged for a payment gateway. In the long run, a payment gateway is much more cost effective solution and gives the merchant more control in accepting and managing their online payments.
