If you are in business and do not know where to start when it comes to accepting online payments from all major credit cards, you have come to the right place.

Looking for a way to take credit card payments online?
Need to make sure you are processing credit cards securely?
Just follow these easy steps:

  • Obtain an Internet Merchant Facility;
  • Obtain a Payment Gateway Facility.

1. Obtain an Internet Merchant Facility

In order to take credit card payments online you will need an Internet Merchant Facility from a bank or a Payment Gateway.
The following Payment Gateways can help you obtain a Merchant Facility - otherwise please enquire from your business bank provider.

  • SCNet
  • eWay
  • Securepay

  • Note: This is not the same as an EFTPOS terminal account, so if you currently have a swipe terminal you will still need to apply for an Internet Merchant Facility.

    Please see Internet Merchant Facilities - What You Need To Know for more information

    2. Obtain a Payment Gateway Facility

    Below is a list of some of the leading Australian Payment Gateways. Each Gateway will charge their own prices which will need to be added on top of any other fees your bank may charge for a Merchant Account.
