How Does a Merchant Account & Payment Gateway Work?
A customer places an order from your online store. Their credit card information then gets sent to the payment gateway (Authorize.net).
Your Payment Gateway (Authorize.net) checks that the information it received is enough to continue the transaction. It will determine the customer's credit card company (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX...) and send a request to approve the funds.
The customer's credit card company (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX...) validates the card and the account. If the transaction is approved, the credit card company will send back an approved message through the payment gateway (Authorize.net), if it is declined they will send back and error message as to why it was declined.
Your payment gateway (Authorize.net) will then send back that message to your shopping cart program to display to the customer and complete the transaction. Then the credit card company (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX...) will initiate a transfer for those funds to the merchant account bank (United Bank Card).
The Merchant Account Bank (United Bank Card) will then deposit the funds, minus any transaction fees, into the merchant's (You) bank account that it has on record. Funds usually deposit within 2-3 days from the day of the sale.
10. Bigger Purchases – It is a fact that credit card shoppers spend 2-3 times more per purchase than the average shopper, which means increased profits for your business. The average credit card purchase last year was around $80.00 which almost doubled the average cash purchase of about $40.00.
