Service: Item -
A payment gateway is a merchant service provided by an e-commerce application service provider that authorizes credit card or direct payments processing for e-businesses, online retailers, bricks and clicks, or traditional brick and mortar. The payment gateway may be provided by a bank to its customers, by a specialised financial service provider as a separate service, such as PayPal, Stripe, Square, ApplePay, AndroidPay, Authorize.net, QuickBooks, WorldPay, AmazonPayments, GoogleCheckouts, or by one of hundreds of other payment service providers. The process to set up a payment gateway is somewhat technical and bewildering to the novice business owner. If you want to take mobile or website payments for your products or services that you sell, but don’t know where to start, we can help. No need to worry about the details and spend days learning how to integrate your payment gateway. We will handle all the logistics and technical set-up for you to create a seamless interface between your bank and your customers.

The process of setting up a payment gateway service for use on your website, mobile app, or email invoicing is a somewhat time-consuming and tedious process. We have learned the hard way that there can be a tremendous learning curve to integrating such a platform properly into your business processes. As an entrepreneur, you must decide whether the several hours spent on this one-time learning curve is worth your scarce time and resources. We soon discovered that it would have been much better and cheaper from an opportunity cost basis if we could have hired a third-party provider like us to set this up for this business. Fortunately for you, we have taken the time to learn the basics and can help you get up and running much faster than you likely could on your own.
Typically, this task will take 3-6 hours per service to set-up and integrate properly, IF you already know what to do. If you are new to the task, expect to spend 12-18 hours researching, choosing a provider, learning how to program your website and email templates, and then connecting it all to your corporate or personal bank accounts. Of course the boost in productivity and timely collection of client payments is essential to your success, so the opportunity costs of NOT having an efficient payment processing system can be detrimental to the typical SMB. Here are the basic tasks that we perform as part of this service:
Select a provider
Create a user account
Program the banking <==> payment-gateway linkage
Test the linkage with two small deposits
Create corporate branding on the payment confirmation and invoice templates
Create website buttons for use on your website
Create email templates for sending of digital payment invoices
Train you on the process of editing your back office for new or revised content
We do recommend setting up at least two payment gateway services, PayPal + either Stripe or Square. Although this doubles the cost of setting up your payment gateway, the use of two services should cover most possible methods of payment that your customers may require. If you only have the desire or budget for one service, we can help you choose the best one for your business needs.

To purchase one of our services in either CAD or USD, simply click the Buy Now button for your local currency and you will be taken directly to the Stripe shopping cart checkout. This is our preferred default method of payment using Stripe. However, if you prefer to use the PayPal interface instead, click the PayPal Buy button where you will have the option to use your credit card without creating a Free PayPal account, or you may login into a new or current PayPal account.
(Note: if a selection is unavailable when clicking a button, then we may have not yet coded the cart for that option. Please choose another option or Contact Us.)
Note: Not all services can be self-ordered through our online store; such services will be invoiced directly. CANADA ONLY: If you are in Canada and ordering just this single service in $CAD, you may also use the Single Item Quick Order button. If you are ordering more than one service, choose the Online Store for Multi-item Orders button to add items to the shopping cart.
For all credit card payments, a fee of 3-4% will be included in the Tax line item at checkout to cover our merchant processing costs. Upon request of an invoice, this transaction fee can be avoided by paying directly by e-transfer. Payments are fulfilled via Stripe, PayPal, or Square.
See our services tab for more information on other ancillary services you may require.
