How does a Credit Card transaction work?
A credit card processing transaction is not only quick, but its also convenient for both the merchant and the customer. Even though the transaction only takes a few seconds to complete, the process is a complex progression. Involved is a network of banks and financial institution all working together to complete a single transaction.
During a single transaction, there are at least 5 different organizations involved in completing a single authorization.
• The cardholder
• The merchant
• The payment processor (working with (or is) the acquiring bank)
• The acquiring bank (merchant’s settlement bank)
• The issuing bank (cardholder’s bank)
• The card associations (ie; Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, etc.)
• The payment gateway (for eCommerce transactions)
Once a card is wiped in the merchants location, the card information is encrypted and send to the payment processor. The payment processing forwards the card data through the acquiring bank along to the card associations. The card associations, also known as the interchange, will determine the kind of card and who the issuing bank is for the cardholder. Card data is then passed along to the issuing bank to determine if the credit card can be authorized. Regardless if the card is approved or declines, the information is sent back through the same process to the merchant location.
When at credit card processing authorization originates from a website, the process is identical expect for 1 step. For security reason, merchants have to use a payment gateway between the website and the payment processor. An ecommerce transaction begins when the customer checks out of an online shopping cart. Most ecommerce websites have an online shopping cart that is integrated into a payment gateway. Some websites do use a hosted payment page instead of a shopping cart. The payment gateway accepts the cardholders data, then encrypts the information for transmission. Once the package arrives at the payment processor, the payment gateway translates the information for the processor to send.
