DEBIT AND CREDIT CARD ACQUIRING:

DEBIT AND CREDIT CARD ACQUIRING:

Acquiring is the function of processing card-based transactions made by a bank’s cardholders or cards issued by other banks, all at a fee which is fully compliant with payment industry mandates including Euro pay MasterCard and VISA (EMV), and certified by all major international payment networks.

Acquiring also involves the process of recruiting agents who will allow card acceptance in their outlets to facilitate payments within the network; the merchant acquirer provides tools like Point of Sale terminals (POS), ATMs or even the internet to make it possible for payment of goods and services.  

We offer two types of payments;

CARD PRESENT;

In this type of payment, a physical ATM card is required to be present at the merchant to make the payment using the POS terminal by either swiping or inserting the card.

Name

CARD NOT PRESENT;

In this payment method, the card does not have to be present at the merchant location. The cardholder sends the particulars on his/her ATM card that are required to the merchant and the payments are done.

WHY ACQUIRE
