Merchant services enable businesses to accept payments through secure, encrypted channels.
By setting up a merchant account, funds from processed transactions are deposited with the account serving as an intermediary between your business bank account, the credit card networks, and your customer's issuing bank.
How it works:
Your customer pays for the services your company provides by completing a card transaction.
The card payment terminal securely sends the payment details to your merchant account requesting payment authorization.
Your merchant accounts sends the transaction to the connected credit card association.
The credit card association passes the transaction to the credit card issuer or issuing bank.
The issuing bank determines whether to approve or deny the transaction based on the customer's account status.
The approval or denial message is sent back to your business's card payment terminal.
