Payment Acquiring Platform functional modules

Take a closer look at what each module of the Payment Acquiring Platform is responsible for and can take care of in your acquiring infrastructure. 

Payment Acquiring Platform Switch

The Switch is central to any Payment Acquiring Platform installation and provides essential services such as transaction logging, transaction routing, and encryption operations. Moreover, it encompasses components for seamless communication over TCP/IP and a standard clearing transaction format based on common standards.

In addition, the module incorporates comprehensive administration functionality to managing users and user groups in the Online GUI. The Switch excels in handling multiple currencies and is designed to operate in a multi-tenant mode, serving multiple clients from a single system installation – making it the ideal choice for supporting processing businesses.

Transaction routing and authorization by BIN ranges is configured in the module and contains default parameters that can be applied automatically to any card linked to that range.

Payment Acquiring Platform Gateway

A payment gateway serves as a crucial intermediary between merchants and the Switch system, enabling secure and efficient online transaction processing. Key features include robust encryption for data security, ensuring sensitive information is securely transmitted.

It supports multiple payment methods, catering to a global audience's preferences, and integrates seamlessly with various e-commerce platforms for a smooth user experience. Real-time transaction processing offers immediate feedback on payment acceptance or denial, while fraud detection tools help mitigate potential risks.

Additionally, comprehensive analytics provide valuable insights into purchasing trends and customer behavior, empowering merchants with data to optimize their sales strategies.
