An acquirer is a financial institution that processes payments from certain credit and debit cards. The acquirer is responsible for the financial part of transaction processing and Ingenico ePayments is responsible for the technical part. In other words, without an acquirer you won't get paid.
For every online payment method you want to add, you need an acceptance contract with an acquirer. If you'd like advice on which acquirer would be best suited for you and your region, please contact our Sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know which acquirer you want to work with, you can simply select them from the drop down list when adding a payment method in your account.
But why not let us take care of it for you? Ingenico Full Service allows you to activate many local payment methods, all at once and in several different countries – with one single contract. If you trade internationally, it could be the ideal way to accept payments from all across Europe. It saves you time-consuming administration and because you can offer more payment methods, it can also increase your revenues.
