Merchant Services Branding

Nowadays merchant services branding is rapidly gaining relevance. More and more companies want to use Payment Pages and bill payment portals, and want the information displayed on those Payment Pages and portals to be branded.

Different Payment Processing Solutions

As people and organizations adapt various types of payment processing solutions, they face the challenges emerging around branding and white-label options. The range of entities in need of branding solutions is very wide. Many merchant service providers like to have their own branded versions of virtual terminals or have their logo and contact information on merchant statements they are sending to merchants. Independent sales organizations (ISOs) are becoming payment service providers, so their white-label (branding) needs grow. Businesses dealing with virtual currencies and implementing e-wallet solutions also face branding-related challenges; these businesses are interested in white-label payment gateway offerings that they can adapt and then resell as part of their offer. Software companies try to build their revenue off of the merchant services, and very often they require branded solutions as well.

White-label payment gateways and open-source payment gateways provide flexible tools to be used by merchants, resellers, payment service providers, merchant service providers and other industry players for branding of information which they share with their respective customers.
