What's a Payment Gateway?

Basically, a gateway can be thought of as a bridge or "secure connection" from the bank to your storefront allowing your customers to make credit card purchases that directly deposit into your bank accounts.

Do I need one?

To accept credit, debit, or Interac Online transactions, yes.

If the term sounds new you may be used to hearing it referred to as merchant services or just bundled in as a "silent partner" with your overall merchant account.

Simply put, merchant accounts (Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Discover, etc.) and payment gateways go hand-in-hand. The merchant-customer transaction experience requires both - no exceptions.
