THE SMALL PRINT DETAIL
Payment Fees: Explained
There are three main elements to a successful, secure transaction on your website:
The Payment Gateway authorises you to take customer card payments directly from your website.
Payment Processors are the financial institutions that work in the background that connects to both the merchant account and payment gateway.
Merchant Accounts are the types of bank accounts accept credit or debit cards payments online. You can transfer from these into a regular account if required.
Note: For example SagePay offer a gateway only.
Note: These are different to the additional Transaction Fees that Shopify charges you, if you choose an alternate payment gateway.
