marketplace is extremely competitive. Providing your customers with
convenient online credit card processing is as important as selling a
quality product or service. Research shows that consumers increasingly
choose credit cards and ATM/debit cards as their preferred method of payment
and Internet sales can increase by 100%.
For all online credit card processing, there are two parts: the
authorization and the settlement.
Authorization means that the fund availability is verified and the funds (if
available) are automatically put on hold. This important step defines the
"approved" or "declined" status of a payment.
Settlement is the process by which the money that was put on hold is
electronically captured and transferred into the merchant business bank
account. In most cases, this process takes 48-business hours.
