If you’ve ever purchased anything online before, you’ve touched a payment gateway, and probably all without realizing it! When you click “purchase” or “buy now,” a series of transactions are occuring between and website and its payment gateway that result in a successful purchase and the eventual shipment of your goods.
A payment gateway is a service that allows you to securely accept credit card payments from customers shopping on your website. True to its name, the gateway’s role is to pass a customer’s credit card information through an authentication service, then onto your website, so that you can use their funds to complete a purchase.
A gateway must be fully integrated with a website to make the process of payment seamless. If the integration is not set up correctly, customers may leave, or experience confusing errors that drive them away.

Shipping and Fulfillment
You put a lot of effort into making sure your customers have a great experience. You approve the images, you tweak your store, and you write the emails, all with the goal of leaving your customers happy.
But when it comes to shipping, it can feel like you’re handing your brand over to a stranger.
With some thought and planning, however, it doesn’t have to feel that way—which is a good thing, because shipping is a key part of your business. It’s the point where a customer finally experiences your product in person, and it can also represent a major expense in your business, depending on your shipping strategy.
