Frequently Asked Questions

How do digital payments work?

Whether for B2B card processing or B2C card transactions, digital payments work the same:

  • The gateway captures the transaction request and either encrypts or tokenizes the information, then routes it to an acquiring bank.
  • The acquiring bank (which provides your merchant account) takes ownership of the transaction request. Its job is to get authorization for the transaction.
  • The issuing bank assesses the request: Does the customer have sufficient credit or funds? The issuing bank generates a response — yes or no — and sends it back to the acquiring bank via the card network.
  • The acquiring bank sends the response back to the payment gateway.
  • The payment gateway’s final job is to present the answer either back to the merchant or to the shopper directly (if you’re using a hosted payment page). 

Congratulations, your order is approved!

What is a payment processor?

A payment processor provides functionality to deliver payment transactions to the acquirer and manage settlement of funds on behalf of the acquirer.

What is payment orchestration?

Payment orchestration is the back-end management of the full payment process from start to finish. A payment orchestration platform simplifies the complexities of payments, giving companies full control to manage payments, allowing for differences by country, by product, by issuer and more.
