Different mode of transactions are used for payment gateways such as real-time bank transfers, direct debits, and others. Transactions that include payment gateways are prepaid cards, debit cards, credit cards, and charge cards. The most widely used forms are credit cards and debit cards. Credit cardholders draw on a credit limit permitted by the card issuer such as a bank, store, or service provider. Credit card balances are usually rolling, whereby, part of the balance needs to be paid on a 30-day basis, until the full balance is paid. Whereas, debit cards are bank cards used in cash transactions, which are not credit cards. In a debit card transaction, the amount of a purchase is withdrawn from the available balance in the cardholder’s account. If the available funds are insufficient, the transaction is not completed. This is also called asset card (in the US), or payment card.

Growing Third Party Payments to Augur Well for Global Market Growth
Emerging markets are the home for 85% of the global population, and about 90% of people under 30 years of age reside within these emerging markets. These markets are presently discovering themselves at a ‘sweet spot‘, where the population is favouring the growth of online transactions, which are in turn curtailing the black economy and stimulating economic growth. By opening up the banking market to non-bank players, regulators are side-stepping the requirement for banking institutions to being able to provide a full spectrum of financial services. This has brought about the ‘FinTech Revolution’. This has been a driver for the online payment gateway market, as regulators are allowing third parties to control payment processing.
