What is a payment gateway?
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, or in our case: hotel owners selling their rooms online, directly via their own website with the help of CultBooking Engine. The payment gateway it is provided by a specialized financial service provider: Mollie.
A payment gateway facilitates a payment transaction by the transfer of information between a payment portal (such as a website or mobile phone) and the front end processor CultBooking via Mollie.
