Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about Online Payments? Find the answers here.

  • What is a card payment transaction?

    The term "payment card" includes credit cards, debit cards, and stored-value cards, as well as payment through any distinctive marks of a payment card (such as a credit card number). A payment card is issued under an agreement that provides standards and mechanisms for settling the transactions between a merchant acquiring bank and the providers who accept the cards as payment. A payment card transaction is the use of a credit or debit card to make payment for a sale of goods or services.
  • Which are the Card Associations / Networks?

    A card network (sometimes called a card association or the card brands) is an organization that facilitates payment card transactions. It regulates who, where, and how cards are used. The most popular card networks are Visa®, Mastercard®, American Express®, Discover®, China UnionPay®, and JCB®.

    Some card associations, such as Visa and Mastercard, partner with its members to perform different tasks throughout the payment lifecycle. For example:

    o Issuing banks issue credit or debit cards to qualified consumers. With these cards, consumers can make purchases at authorized merchant outlets.
    o Acquiring banks provide merchant accounts to qualified businesses. When a customer makes a purchase at a merchant, the acquiring bank collects the funds from the issuing bank and deposits them into the merchant account.

    Other card networks, such as American Express and Discover, have more independence. These networks predominately issue cards directly to cardholders without any assistance from Issuers. Likewise, some transactions are processed by acquirers, but the majority are processed by the network itself.
  • What is an alternative payment method (APM)?

    Credit and debit card payments are not the only payment options available out there. As you likely know, other common payment options include:

    o Cash in the form of fiat money or coins
    o Bank transfers
    o Checks
    o Money Orders
    o Barter/trade (as a form of compensation)

    While bank transfers have been used widely in recent years and are still common, the growth and reach of the internet and online payment solutions have made it possible to use other online payment alternatives such as:

    o Direct debits
    o Digital wallets
    o Phone and mobile payments
  • What is a payment processing currency?

    Your payment processing currency is the currency that relates to your customer when they purchase from you. It can be the currency you show on your website or mobile app, and the currency that your customer is charged in. Depending on your account setup, you may be able to process payments in more than one currency.
  • What is a settlement currency?

    Settlement currency is the currency in which your merchant account is funded in by the Acquirer and in which your funds will be deposited into your business bank account. Depending on your account setup, you may only be able to settle in your home currency, or you may have the option to settle in multiple currencies. Typically, available settlement currencies are limited to the major currencies in your region.
