Certified Credit Card Processing Networks
The typical Visa transaction has four parties:
A Visa transaction is a carefully orchestrated process. When a Visa account holder in Mumbai uses a Visa card to buy a pair of shoes, it's actually the acquirer - the merchant's bank - that reimburses the merchant for the shoes. Then, the issuer - the account holder's bank - reimburses the acquirer, usually within 24 to 48 hours. Lastly, the issuer collects from the account holder by withdrawing funds from the account holder's bank account if a debit account is used, or through billing if a credit account is used.
What is a merchant account:
A merchant account is a credit card processing or debit card processing account with a bank that is a member of the Visa and MasterCard associations. Such a bank has been certified by Visa and MasterCard associations and can provide you, the merchant, with all of the services related to your merchant account. Once your merchant account is setup and "live" on the credit card system, you can start the real time processing of credit card.
What is Real Time Processing?
A real time credit card processing system is a transaction processing system that functions as a payment service using a secure transaction server on the Internet. Merchants with a valid merchant account can use the system to submit, authorize, capture, and settle credit card or eCheck transactions without the need for a separate transaction terminal or processing software.
