Payment gateway - Need to know

The payment gateway is a vital part of taking card payments online, in store, over the phone or on mobile. At its simplest, a payment gateway collects card details at the checkout and passes them securely to a retailer's acquiring bank, and on to the issuing bank to ensure the transaction can be completed.

The right payment gateway partner does much more than this. It can streamline the checkout process, give excellent fraud protection, reduce cart abandonment and offer shoppers a consistent experience regardless of channel, device, language or currency. All crucial factors for retailers aiming to continually improve the shopping experience for customers.

How to pick the right in-store, omnichannel or online payment gateway

As a retailer, you'll know what your priorities are when it comes to building your strategy in an increasingly complex payments landscape.

These might include: exemplary security and fraud protection; integrated or omnichannel commerce capabilities; global expansion thanks to multi-currency payment acceptance; ongoing expert support; and data insights that will help you refine and improve your strategy. It's important to build your payments infrastructure based on your priorities and on your growth ambitions.

Not all payment gateways are set up or developed to keep up with fast-evolving payment technology and customer demands.

Barclaycard Smartpay payment gateway options give you the peace of mind and capability to ensure all of the above, and much more, are covered.
