    How to integrate payment method to a website, like in Wordpress.
  • Hamda
    Hi Marileen,

    1- Understand what the gateway does. The payment gateway processes the customer's credit card information by sending the data to the gateway's web server, which then makes the sale and sends the confirmation back to the website. You can quickly integrate your gateway into your website's shopping cart software.
    2- Browse your options. There are a lot of different payment gateways out there, and they can get a bit confusing. Before you start looking, check which gateways your shopping cart software supports. Your shopping cart software's support site should have a list of compatible payment gateways.
    3- Pay attention to fees and conditions. The payment gateway will typically charge you a one-time setup fee, a monthly fee, and then charge a small fee for each transaction processed. Compare rates to find the service that meets your needs the best.
    4- Pick between an external or a direct gateway. External gateways (also known as "redirect") send your customers to another website to process the payment. Direct gateways (also known as "transparent") do the processing within your store, keeping the customer on your site. If possible, choose a direct gateway, as they look more professional.
    5- Sign up for a merchant account. You will need to sign up for a merchant account, which you then link to your payment gateway. This will allow you to receive payments from the customer. Merchant accounts will typically charge you per transaction as well.
    6- Sign up for your chosen payment gateway. Once you sign up for your gateway, you will be provided the necessary information that you will need to provide to your online store software.

    In WordPress, There are numerous Plugins which would Allow you to Integrate the Payment Gateway without any hassle.

    All that you need to do is to get the account with the Payment Gateway and then search for the plugin that would help you in accepting the money using that Gateway. Pretty much all the Payment Gateways available in the market do have a WordPress Plugin as well

However, you need to choose a reliable payment gateway, you should ask around, search online for the best one to integrate on your website. Similarly, you should check the fees and conditions, this is very important so that you don't lose money or even charge your clients more than you should.
