Payment Processing eCommerce Integration
Clarity eCommerce™ Integration with Payment Gateways
Reliable, secure payment processing is at the core of eCommerce operations. A wide variety of payment processors are available to meet B2B and B2C needs. Clarity eCommerce™ with Clarity Connect was built for maximum compatibility with any payment gateway, allowing you to fully customize your eCommerce solution to your unique processes. Equipped with the right gateway, you can ensure that you receive payment and that your customers are satisfied. When it comes to finding the right solution for your business, consider the following:
How much can my company afford?
Payment processors do have fees, so if accepting secure payments is key to your company, you’ll need a solution that offers the most benefit based on your price point. Some payment gateways require hefty initial setup fees, while others only require a certain percentage of each sale made. Some services even combine both. For larger businesses in need of robust support and architecture, the extra cost of setup may be worth it. For smaller businesses without a high number of monthly transactions, more affordable, less expensive payment processors are a more logical choice. Regardless of your business size, Clarity eCommerce™ can scale to meet your current and future needs.
What kinds of payments does my business need to accept?
Most payment processors all you to accept all major credit cards. Some payment processors allow you to integrate with PayPal (an independent payment gateway on its own), pay by e-check, and more. With Clarity’s robust tax calculation and currency conversion, you can ensure that charges are always accurate, regardless of payment method.
How does security factor into my company’s needs?
Payment processors come with the risk of compromised data, as with any web solution. If security is especially important to your business, consider a payment processor that offers fraud protection, and make sure to evaluate the company’s customer support options as well, so you can receive quick service in case of an emergency. The Clarity Connect middleware layer also ensures that data is secure as it is pushed and pulled between your storefront and ERP or CRM.
Does my organization plan to conduct business abroad?
Some payment processors allow your company to operate from anywhere in the world. Other gateways will accept payments from international customers, but require your business itself to operate in the United States. No matter what your international needs, Clarity eCommerce™ has built in support for your payment processor.
