Payment Gateway Integration: What Merchants Need to Know
Connecting your online business to our payment gateway
If you are a merchant using the Instabill Payment Gateway, you’ll need to integrate your servers with our servers. At Instabill, we try to make things easy for our merchants. Payment gateway integration might sound confusing or even a little scary–but it doesn’t have to be. Our expert tech support team has helped thousands of merchants integrate their websites and online shopping carts to the secure Instabill Payment Gateway.
What Exactly is Payment Gateway Integration?
Payment gateway integration means connecting your e-commerce business’ servers to ours so they can communicate and act as one. For example, you would integrate your shopping cart to Instabill’s server so your customers’ transactions go directly from your website to the Instabill Payment Gateway.
What Features Can I Integrate?
There are several features of your website and business operations you may want to integrate with your payment gateway. What you choose, however, should be directly related to your credit card processing needs. What is good for one merchant may not be so for another. Some things to consider integrating include:
- Online shopping carts
- APIs (Application Programming Interface
- Content Management Systems (or CMS)
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems
- Custom applications
If you are a mail order/telephone order (MOTO) merchant, integrating your CRM gives operators the option of placing orders directly through the CRM, instead of using the Virtual Terminal. Integrating your CRM or CMS will also help provide centralized management. For more integration options, contact our friendly and knowledgeable tech team.
