A better payment gateway

I'm thinking of switching payment gateways primarily because of security issues. Other than PCI compliance, what else should I look for in my next payment gateway?

Francine Frazier
Frazier Bankcard Co.


We agree that security is paramount for payment gateways. A short list of other issues to consider includes reliability, ease of use, overall performance, customer service, compatible payment platforms, reporting options and cost.

For an in-depth discussion of this topic, see "Enlightening talk about gateway," by Ken Musante, The Green Sheet, Dec. 13, 2010, issue 10:12:01. To get the discussion going, Musante asked members of GS Online's MLS Forum the following questions: What payment gateway do you use and why? What are the pros and cons of a proprietary gateway?

As you can see, gateways are more than just commoditized virtual terminals. Many have evolved into complete processing platforms that have more functionality and features than traditional solutions.
