If your needs include moving to a third-party ecommerce or shopping site, you may need a gateway to connect the site to Dharma. A payment gateway is the online-equivalent of a credit card terminal. The payment gateways’ job is to encrypt, and then securely authorize a credit card transaction. Payment gateways are fundamentally required when accepting a credit card transaction online, because they’re responsible for transporting sensitive credit card data.
Dharma offers both Authorize.net and NMI, two leading gateways that will allow connectivity from virtually any commerce site. If you are setting up an online storefront and need a gateway, please send an email to Dharma Sales and we’ll get your order processed right away.
