Payment Service Provider

What is a payment service provider?

A payment service provider (PSP) is an organisation that enables businesses to accept electronic payments. This can be by a variety of methods and includes credit and debit card payments, direct debit processing and trade card and account management services. These payments can be made in person by the client (Cardholder Present), or over the telephone or through the internet (Card Not Present).

How does a payment service provider process payments?

A payment service provider connects to many different acquiring banks, card and payment networks in order to process payments for their merchants. A name typically used to describe these services is a Payment Gateway. Many payment service providers offer additional services such as risk and fraud management and reporting that move beyond the scope of Payment Gateways however.
