How do I become my own payment gateway (like authorize.net)?

Postby nand2k10 » Sat Mar 12, 2011 1:14 am

In my country (Pakistan) paypal does not work. I can not signup for paypal.

I want to look into starting (or buying) a payment gatway system similar to authorize.net (et. al.). Anyone have any ideas what is required to do this?

I understand the payment processing cycle and I understand merchant accounts, gateway, etc. What I don't understand is who does the payment gateway talk to when they receive the credit card/check info? Are they talking directly to visa/mc/amex/discover, etc? Are talking to a bank and the bank handles it from there?
What I need from my country's banks?
and how connect banks direct to payment gateways like paypal?
Or any solution that work as "middleman" who connect my country's banks to paypal. If suppose in Pakistan's bank have not API or other system that they provide to this facilities to payment gateways then what role i do for that

Thanks in advance.

Each payment processing center have their own contracts with either the banks or the credit card companies themselves.


You may not be able to talk directly with the credit card companies, and may just want to try talking to local banks to see if they have anything that they can set you up with.

good luck.

There are so many payment gateways are available for online payment. People only want security of their payment at the time of online shopping. I am using merchantinc.com which is reliable secure and faster money transfer processor we can say provides the best rates in the industry for credit card processing.
