What Are the Benefits of a Hosted Payments Page?
Whether you are looking to add payment processing functionality to your web application or e-commerce site for the first time or are looking for a new payment solution provider, you may want to consider a hosted payments solution. You will find most payments providers have hosted payments integrations which are ideal for e-commerce sites and allow for developers to quickly add payment processing functionality to their website. Hosted payments can provide several advantages.
Simple Transactions for E-Commerce Environments with Hosted Payments
One of the biggest benefits of hosted payments is simplicity. You can easily create and add a payments page that allows your site to start accepting credit card transactions securely and quickly. Once the hosted payments page is created, all you need to do is embed a link or create a redirection protocol that points to the page. Essentially, this type of payment solution functions as a shopping cart for merchants.
When the customer enters payment information into the embedded hosted payments page, the page removes the need for the website to handle cardholder data. With this integration type developers do not need to worry about building the tools and infrastructure to securely process payments.
Minimal PCI Compliance Responsibilities
Because a third party takes care of processing payments, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requirements for are greatly reduced. With most hosted payments integrations, the sensitive financial data is transferred directly to the payment processing network without ever touching the actual website.
