Why you should be using E-commerce and Online Payments
E-commerce is the most rapidly expanding area of business in card process – where Card processing is required so payments can be made securely and in good time. In 2014, 36.6 million adults purchased goods and services over the internet, equating to 72% of the adult population. In addition, 717 million card payments were made online with a total spend of £47.2 billion.
When you wish to start trading over the internet you take orders on your website that is in effect ‘virtual’ or electronic shop that displays a brochure of the goods or services you have for sale. To receive payment, you require a payment page provided by a Payment Service Provider. In most cases when your customer is ready to pay they are then taken to the Payment Service Provider’s own website so the card details can be taken in a fully secure and compliant manner.
