FAQ

What is a payment gateway and virtual terminal?

A virtual terminal is a secure website which businesses can log into to process all major credit cards (i.e. Visa, MasterCard, Amex and Diners). It is similar to a standard credit card terminal (that you would find in your local store), except that a virtual terminal uses a computer (or smart-phone) and a secure Internet connection to process payments.
A virtual POS terminal is for businesses who want to capture and process credit card payments from customers over the phone, face to face or away from the office.
