A payment gateway links your website to your processing network and merchant account. Like most gateways, Payflow Payment Gateway, handles all major credit and debit cards. What makes our gateway different is the low rates and incremental sales boost from offering PayPal and PayPal Credit payment options on your site.
How does it work?
A payment gateway is a service that sends credit card information from a website to the credit card payment networks for processing, and returns transaction details and responses from the payment networks back to the website. Depending on which of our payment gateway options you choose, credit card information is sent either from a checkout page hosted by PayPal (when Payflow Link is used), or from a checkout page hosted on your own website (when Payflow Pro is used).
