Start an Account with a Credit Card Processor
Before you can start accepting credit card payments, you need to first have an account with a credit card processing company, also known as a merchant account. There are various types of merchant accounts available, so we can discuss your needs to identify the services that will match your business. For example, you might consider services such as Point of Sale (POS), online sales, NFC wireless transactions, mobile, phone, and more.
Series of Steps to Complete the Transaction
It might seem simple to swipe a credit card, but this motion starts a series of events that ultimately results in the money being deposited in your bank account. When the credit card information is used, the sale is initiated, and the information is sent to the payment processor. The issuing bank also receives notification.
Your credit card processor acts as the intermediary between your business and the bank that issued the card. When the bank receives the notification, the it will be approved or declined depending on the status of the account. Then, the information is sent back through the processor to let you know if the transaction was successful. Even though there are many steps involved, this process takes just a few seconds.
