How Online Merchant Services Work

It can sometimes seem confusing to think about happens when a customer makes an online payment, but it’s actually not as complicated as you might think. Here is a rundown of the credit card payment process step-by-step:

• The client makes an online purchase;
• They pay using their credit card;
• The merchant submits a credit card transaction;
• The payment gateway—which provides a secure connection from your business to your merchant service—submits the transaction to the processor;
• The processor submits the transaction to the credit card company;
• The credit card company sends it to the customer’s bank;
• If the transaction is approved by the customer’s bank, the bank sends the money to the credit card network;
• The credit card network sends the money to the merchant where it is deposited.

SecurityMetrics Service

No matter how secure your business system is, it is always at risk of attack from identity thieves. If your data system is breached the credit card association will usually order a forensic investigation, which can cost in the region of $12,000-$100,000. You may also be penalized with further fees and fines. This is why Try Transparent helps our customers protect their customers with our free SecurityMetrics Assurance. This is a liability reduction program that provides you with business tools that empower you to run your company without having to worry about the effects of data compromise.

SecurityMetrics Assurance will help you diminish your risk of data breach and liability by locating and deleting sensitive payment card data. We also provide one hour of professional security consulting to help you understand how to operate your business with optimal security.

Plus, SecurityMetrics Assurance provides up to $100,000 per Merchant Identification Number (MID) so that you won’t be out-of-pocket should you be faced with forensic investigations, payment card brand fees and fines, regulatory penalties or post-event consultations.
