6 Reasons Choosing the Right Payment Gateway and Integration is Critical
Payment gateways are the technology which ties together your membership site and the payment
network. Essentially, it creates a connection between the credit card being used to make a purchase and
the company that is authorizing the sale.
1. Eliminate the Risk of Recurring Payment Processing Issues
Not all payment gateways make it easy to set up recurring payment processing. A majority of
membership websites rely on some form of recurring payment be it weekly, monthly, or annually. Along
with processing the payment, it is important to select a payment gateway which alerts you when a
payment does not go through. Ideally, this process is automated and hands-free.

2. Easily Adapt to a Growing Global Audience
The ability to accept debit and credit card payments provides a membership site with a global reach. The
global market share of credit cards and debit cards in circulation isn’t led by a single dominant brand
such as Visa or MasterCard but rather a combination of private label solutions which continue to grow in
popularity. Private label cards can be issued by specific banks, employers, and online retailers. If you
eliminate the combined total of private label solutions, Visa is responsible for the most purchase
transactions globally with MasterCard a distant second.
