Credit Card Transactions on your ecommerce Web Site

Published on

Credit card payment processing on a Zeald ecommerce web site is done automatically by a facility called a ‘payment gateway’.

With automatic credit card transaction processing, the details are sent securely by the system to a ‘payment gateway’. The details are then verified by the ‘payment gateway’ for validity and available funds. Once these details have been checked, the transaction is processed and completed.

Using one of our recommended payment gateways ensures your credit card processing is both secure and compliant with the highest and most exacting of industry standards and requirements for payment processing online ("PCI Compliant").

Display Symbols of Accepted Credit Cards



Consider displaying symbols of credit cards on your web site home page. This communicates instantly that the web site has e-commerce capabilities. It is not necessary to show every accepted credit card on the home page, but it is a good idea to provide a link to a list of accepted cards. This is especially useful for customers with obscure credit cards; they want to know in advance whether your web site accepts theirs.
