Merchant Services and Payment Gateways Explained

Having an e-commerce merchant account allows your business to accept credit and debit cards online. They are set up with a bank or merchant service provider. Account types vary and set-up time and approval can vary from being instant to as long as 1-2 weeks.

Merchant services and payment gateways are often combined so the terminology for both can become entwined and sometimes confusing for most people. Basically, the payment gateway acts as the relay between the merchant account and your website to process the card transactions. The payment gateway encrypts the data being processed and also works to eliminate fraudulent transactions. Most of the solutions have fraud detection built in and then make a charge on the transactions made.

Choosing a Merchant Service


Problems with your website or website designer?


To date we have a 100% success rate of successfully dealing with problem websites - things that are broken and not working properly on your website such as links, or has not ever worked such as an email contact form.

We also have the same 100% success rate of obtaining the login details and website files from previous web designers who have made it difficult for clients to have absolute ownership, control and access of their website.

Perhaps your web designer doesn't answer your calls or emails, or is slow to respond or implement things you have asked to be done on your website. You feel as if you are stuck with them and paying their hosting fees, which are often higher than elsewhere (definitely more than we would charge you!) and you feel locked in to them.

There is a way out, and on your behalf, we deal with getting your website into your control using professional tact and diplomacy at all times. We deal with them for you - all we need is your permission.

Our clients stay with indizine because they want to, and not because they have to.
