What is a Payment Gateway
A payment gateway, such as PayGate, is a way to process electronic transactions. You can think of it as a point-of-sales device in a virtual environment.
A payment gateway facilitates secure online transactions and allows funds to be transferred effortlessly from your client’s bank account to yours. If you are looking to set up a website for your business that allows customers to purchase products online, you will need the services of a secure payment gateway.
