Why it is So Important to Know How a Hosted Payment Page Works

A hosted payment page is a form located outside of the merchant’s website, where customers are redirected to make a transaction while paying for goods or services.

We are convinced that every merchant should be fully aware of how a hosted payment page work. Nevertheless, if merchants prefer to outsource most of the technical payment processes to professionals. Since entrusting all security standards and PCI liability for transaction processing on the website to a payment gateway provider is a very responsible path. So, before doing this merchants must gain at least a basic understanding of how this can be accomplished.

Payment Page: Do You Really Know:

• What happens when customers enter their payment credentials and initiate payments on a hosted web form?
• How to implement a hosted PCI-compliant web page? What should merchants do to pass transaction data securely to the payment gateway server and receive credit card acceptance information?

We have created an explanatory video guide, where you can take a closer look at hosted pages. It will help you understand how they operate and work for your business and your customers. And, with our video, you will be able to explore the different options available.

We’re confident our guide will help you better understand how they communicate with all parties participating in the payment process. You can just focus on your business strategy and the ways to drive it forward.

So, we invite you to check out other videos from our informative series about payments and payment gateway features. Don’t forget to subscribe to our UniPay YouTube channel to stay up-to-date with developments in the payments industry.
