What is a payment gateway?
A payment gateway is a service that processes payments via UPI, debit/credit card, wallets, net banking, EMI, and BNPL for merchants from their customers. It acts as an interface between the merchant’s website and payment processing bank, and is a gateway through which customer’s funds are transferred to the merchant.
A payment gateway can be integrated in any website or mobile application that sells a product or service. It is highly useful and valuable for individuals handling small or large businesses, ecommerce apps, local vendors, freelancers, educational institutions, and more.
