A merchant account is not required to accept online payments but is the commonly preferred method among businesses. Hiring a company to take the payments on the behalf of a business is the alternative option. These services entail a higher overall cost because the percentage rate per transaction is greater. Customers are redirected to the provider's website in these scenarios for the processing portion of payment acceptance. The customer is then redirected back to the business site after everything has been verified. Individual transaction charges will be present regardless of how the collection method is set up. Merchant accounts boost business image for internet sales because they allow a business to perform all processing on a dedicated ecommerce site. Hosted services require a business to put their forms on their site and typically only pay out a few times a month. Merchant selling merchant services services can supply funds a few days after the transaction has been completed and do not limit cash flow or cost as much as the alternative.

The service account is only one item needed for a business to accept online payments. Data encryption on a secure server must be present to prevent unauthorized information access. An order form allows each customer to enter their data as well as any personal information needed for shipping. Companies must include a piece of software called a shopping cart to track every product selection the customer makes. It keeps a running total which is then transferred to the order form when the customer is ready to pay. Authorization, payment processing, and service management all occur through a supplied payment gateway. These items are necessary whether a business is contracting with a third party site or handling these aspects on their ecommerce website. Merchant services for online transactions are an all-around solution for any company wanting to provide their customers with a convenient and fast way to make internet purchases.
