This is my first time trying to find a payment processor to allow my website to accept online payment transactions. I am unfamiliar with the process of what needs to occur once I have identified a provider I would like to work with. I was wondering what steps are needed and how long the process usually takes in getting “approved” to work with a payment processor?
I am charting unfamiliar territory, so any help to clarify the expectations would be greatly appreciated. Also, my assumption is that once I find the payment processor (whether that be Authorize.net, Paypal, etc.), all I need is to have my programmers setup the shopping cart and that should be it… Please correct me if I’m missing anything (I already have a regular business bank account, so hopefully this is sufficient to accept payments into). Thank you!
