Introduction of the training[edit]

Online Payments Systems[edit]

What does an online payments site do? Online payment sites are used to transfer money from a customer’s credit or debit card to a merchant or suppliers bank account

How is an online payment made?[edit]

A – To buy something the Customer enters their credit or debit card details at the Online Merchant checkout site

B – The Online Merchant transfers the payment card details to their selected Payment Gateway

Payment Gateway companies include: PayPal, WorldPay, Stripe, VeriSign, Stripe. Dwolla, Google Wallet and Amazon Pay.

C – The Payment Gateway connects the merchant to the Card Payment Network

Card Payment Network companies include: MasterCard and Visa

D – The card payment network is the glue between the various Payment Gateways and the Card Issuing Bank, and makes the request for payment from the customers bank account at the Card Issuing Bank

Card Issuing Bank is the bank that gave (issued) the physical debit or credit card to the customer

E – The Card Issuing Bank approves, or rejects, the payment request

The Card Issuing Bank passes back the payment approval / rejection details back through the chain to the Card Payment Network, Payment Gateway, Online Merchant and finally to the Customer

F/G/H – If the payment is approved by the Issuing Bank, it transfers the customers money from their bank account to the merchants bank account – this is called Settlement.

What credit/debit card information does the Customer need to supply?[edit]

It depends on the online merchants website! The following 5 elements can be requested:

Cardholder Name – as written on the front of the card

16 digit card number – also known as the Primary Account Number (PAN) – this is linked to the customers bank account (Mandatory)

Card Expiry Date – as written on the front of the card (Mandatory)

Card Verification Value (CVV2) – a 3 digit number on the back of the card

The idea of the CVV2 number is for added security, the idea being only you know and see  this information because you’re in possession of the card.

Cardholder Address – this is not written on the card, but is often used to verify the customer.
