It's a Deal ! : Instant Purchasing through Online Payment

Apr 2, 2008
In the modern world, most anything you want and desire can be accessed through the worldwide web. Whether it's an expensive winter fur coat sold in Ebay or a limited-edition video game, it's yours with a simple click of the button and the input of your credit card account number through an online payment system. It's all about business globalization and quick transactions. All you have to do is patiently wait for the shipment. But if the part about giving your credit card account number gave you pause, don't worry; much emphasis has been given to online payment systems and how they deal with identity theft and other fraudulent acts.

Nowadays, you can easily visit auction sites and online shops to search for items you want to purchase. Because of the emergence of fast and easy online payments, the burden of having to send money orders and other obsolete processes have been removed. You can now buy directly from the seller even if he/she lives thousands of miles away from you. The medium is called online payment gateway.

Online payment gateways are the intermediaries between the sellers and the different financial structures in the transaction. Customers can use online payment gateway and pay for the goods and services they have availed. There are some online payment gateways that allow you to send invoices, make payments for invoices, and others.

Nevertheless, safety and security from identity theft and fraud has always been a major concern in regards to using online payment. Phising, or the act of stealing sensitive information like usernames, credit card details and passwords, have been reported every so often. "Online criminals" usually use the modus operandi by baiting their victims through auctions sites such as Ebay or payment sites such as PayPal. As such, many websites have improved their online payment systems to offer protection to their customer's information and monetary transactions. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) has been used by websites to limit scams and identity theft, as well as the need to apply for an account with them first before any transactions are undertaken.

One of the online payment system considered safer for online shopping is the credit card payment. Because the money is in the bank, they will still earn interest until the day they have to be paid for your purchases. Be careful in giving out credit card information and details in the Internet. When choosing your online payment gateway, opt for compatibility. One that is compatible with other popular systems surely has more options and more convenient.
