With BIG FISH Payment Gateway online merchants can easily offer various electronic payments in their webshops. Payment Gateway helps merchants to enable several payment services on their websites in one step, without a time-consuming development, because the technical communication between payment service providers and websites are provided by the Payment Gateway. The communication between our platform and the merchanters (irrespectively of the payment providers) is standardized, so the transactional messages are „translated to the payment service providers’ language” by the Payment Gateway. The customers can pay on the nail for the invested products or services, so the finances of your webshop are going to be more predictable. Building in the Payment Gateway into your site requires only an one-off, few-hour lasting improvement, for which we provide all-inclusive guidance and technical support.
