Altitude Communications supports a range of payment gateways for processing payments from your shopping cart, events bookings, or membership renewals.
Choosing a payment gateway for your website can be a daunting task - Altitude Communications FastTrack Emarketing software integrates with so many that it can be hard to choose one. The following is a small summary of the payment gateways that Altitude Communications supports. The gateways can be broken up into two main types:
- Where the payment takes place on a third party website (offsite gateways) - This is a good option if you are just starting out in the world of online sales, as an offsite gateway is typically easier to set up and costs less, however it does offer less functionality than onsite gateways.
- Where the payment takes place on your website (onsite gateways) - This is a good option if you believe the volume of transactions on your website will be high. You will typically also need to setup a merchant account with your bank, and your bank will need to support your chosen gateway. Additionally because the transaction happens on your site, you will need to purchase an SSL certificate to encrypt all information sent from your site to our servers.
Here are some of the gateways theat our Shopping Cart, Events Manager and Membership Manager supports. Please ask your online marketing account manager for more information when we are building your site.
