The role an acquirer performs in the online card payment process

If you are looking for an easy way to accept credit card payments, Powercash21’s card acquiring services are an ideal choice.  As a European Acquirer, Powercash21 is responsible for processing debit and credit cards transactions for online merchants in a secure and fraud-protected environment.  

Merchants are given the option of a white label credit card processing service, which is ideal if they want to display their corporate branding. This appears at the payment page and helps promote their company’s image and reputation, instead of displaying the acquirer’s branding.

The role an acquirer performs in the online card payment process

In simple terms, how to accept credit card payments is based on an automated process that involves the following steps:

  • Merchants who want to process credit/debit transactions need to sign a contract with a reliable financial institution (acquirer) who offers card acquiring services
  • The acquirer then provides authorization of card transactions and connects with the issuing bank through a secure gateway
  • A card transaction made by the cardholder is either authorized or rejected based on the data from the issuing bank/card network
  • If approved, funds are deposited into the merchants account


Ensuring secure international credit card processing

Acquirers take on-board the risk and responsibility for processed credit or debit card transactions. Online transactions come with a high risk of data breach and this demands strict security standards are followed relating to fraud prevention (PCI DSS). Powercash21’s payment gateway is PCI DSS Level 1 certified, offering merchants the highest security protection for every online card payment they process.

To ensure security standards are followed, when it comes to global credit card processing, acquirers must follow strict standards relating to fraud prevention. To enhance our card acquiring services, we offer risk and fraud management tools to verify online transactions such as 3D secure, geo-location, velocity checks, and pre-authorizations.
