Frequently asked questions

A payment switch is software that allows the dynamic routing of a transaction process across a host of acquirers and payment service providers based on a predefined set of rules. It enables the merchant to address acquirer outages or low approval rates by routing the transaction through other payment providers.

A payment gateway is software that acts as an intermediary between the merchant’s sales channel and the acquirer. It allows a merchant to collect transaction information, share it with the partnering acquirer, and revert with a confirmation of the payment status.

A payment switch accepts a transaction request that has been validated by the payment gateway. Based on the predefined set of rules and encrypted BIN allotments, it routes the transaction through a payment service provider to ensure a maximum approval rating. Once the service provider sends confirmation of the payment, the switch passes it to the gateway.

API stands for Application Programming Interface. In payment processing terms, an API connects the checkout module of a website or a digital sales channel with the payment gateway. Unlike hosted payment gateways, where a user is directed to an external page for completing the transaction, payment APIs allow the user to complete the transaction on the merchant’s website.

A payment processing service allows a merchant to sell products and services online and accept payments from its customers. As a mediator between the merchant, acquiring bank, cardholder, and issuing bank, a payment processing service facilitates the exchange of transaction data, authorises payments, and enables fund settlements.
