What is payment processing?

Payment processing is a service that allows websites to sell online by accepting payment via electronic methods such as credit cards, debit cards and bank transfers.

Provided by payment service providers, payment processing is the technical connection or 'gateway' between a website and the financial institutions or 'acquirers' that govern different payment methods. To put it simply, without a payment service provider you won't get paid.

Working with Ogone, you will benefit in three key ways. Firstly, our payment gateway is connected over 200 domestic and international acquirers. So, whether you want to take online, mobile or phone payments, we're ideally placed to help you find the right acquirers for your market and offer the payment methods that are preferred by your customers.

Secondly, through our affiliate Tunz.com, we can collect your payments too. We can help you activate several payment methods from different acquirers with just one contract so you can offer your customers more of the local payment methods they know and trust.

And finally, as well as processing and collecting payments, we also offer advanced fraud prevention solutions to help businesses accept more safe orders and block more fraudulent transactions.
