What is a Payment Gateway?

A payment gateway is a merchant service provided by an e-commerce application service provider that accepts credit card or direct payments processing for an online business. Put simply, by means of payment gateway integration, you’ll be able to authorise card payments from your customers.

Which Payment Gateways do we support?

We favour Stripe as a Payment Gateway. Why? Well there’s no monthly subscription costs – so you only pay-as-you-go. Also, reasonable transaction costs total 1.4% + 20p for European cards, and 2.9% + 20p for non-European cards. It’s light-weight, simple, fast and secure. We also integrate with Paypal and can often include this for free! We can also integrate with other payment gateways such as Worldpay or Sage Pay, however it’s best to check with us first if you have a preference or existing payment gateway.

Own your own eCommerce Online Store, or simply allow payments through Checkout.
