Advantages of PayXpert's acquiring services


Published 30/08/2021 · 2 min read

Did you know that acquiring banks, payment gateways, Point of Sale (POS) manufacturers, and other payment processing companies can benefit from partnering with PayXpert?

We help you create the best payment experiences through constant payment technology innovation for businesses. 

Acquiring is the process whereby traditionally, a bank or, more recently a company (with the correct financial payments license), enters into a commercial relationship with the Card Schemes to offer merchants an account to process credit and debit card transactions on behalf of the merchant.

Some of the best-known Card Schemes are Visa, MasterCard, Discover, UnionPay, American Express and Japan Credit Bureau (JCB).

The process for a bank or financial institution to become an acquirer with a card scheme requires commercial contracts, technical system integrations, and certifications before any transactions can be processed for merchants in a live environment.
The situation is made more complex by the fact that each payment channel that the acquirer wants to offer the merchant (eCommerce transactions, MOTO, physical Point of Sale (POS) transactions) requires separate development, integration, and testing per Card Scheme.

This is why many acquirers do not offer merchants the full range of international payment methods that are available, or if they do, they only offer some of the Card Scheme payment options on certain payment solutions – e.g., a merchant account might be enabled for one payment scheme for their eCommerce transactions but not enabled for the same payment scheme for their physical POS transactions; even if the acquirer if a full member of that Card Scheme.

This is where PayXpert's acquiring service offers advantages to merchants, traditional acquirers, payment gateways, and POS integrators.
