Closed Loop Gift Card Processing
Closed loop gift card processing can be arranged by a payment gateway or a merchant in one of several ways. The “closed loop” can involve a third-party gift card issuer, who issues the cards and handles all the acquiring issues (although closed loop gift cards, issued by a third party, can be white-labeled by the merchant). The third-party-based approach does not require as much efforts from the merchant as implementation...

Managing Bank Account Transfers Worldwide
Payment gateway providers, processing transactions worldwide, need to be aware of the fact that different countries are using different systems to handle bank account transfers.

Payment Processing Emulators in Payment Gateways
A payment processing emulator can enhance, and at the same time, simplify the process of integration between a payment gateway and various third parties (such as new merchants and resellers).
