Taking Credit Cards Online

Internet Merchant Status

If you are a retailer you will probably already be able to take credit cards using a terminal or telephone to obtain authorisation for purchases. To take credit cards online you will need an Internet Merchant Status in addition to your normal Credit Card Merchant Status. This can be arranged with any of the major banks. Alternatively you can use an all-in-one solution such as WorldPay which combines an Internet Merchant Status and a payment processor.

Online Credit Card Authorisation

There are various payment processors such as PayPoint, WorldPay, Sage Pay, PayPal, or Google Checkout, some of which require you to have obtained Internet Merchant Status. The transmission of credit card details takes place between payment processors and purchasers via secure servers as identified by the 'padlock' sign.
