“Payment for Purchase – The Complete Transaction”
“Cash & Carry” – the simplest mode of any transaction. Be it on or off-line, physical goods or service related, what matters most to the consumer is that their purchase is successfully and satisfactorily fulfilled. To the merchant, receiving the transacted funds securely from the consumer is of highest priority.
Payment Acquiring: Process the payment for the transaction efficiently and in a secured manner, ensuring that the merchant receives the transacted amount without issue.
Payment Acquiring Bank: Also known as the merchant acceptance bank, this is the primary funds transfer link between the merchant and the consumer. It is the respective acquirer, one of many that partner with the merchant to enable payment transfers made via different acquirers.
A cross-border transaction includes a specific process of detailed verification and validation. The transaction is first accepted by the acquiring bank before being handed off to the international card associations, issuing bank and merchant for validation. Once the data pertaining to the transaction have been validated, the card association will issue an instruction to the issuing bank to debit the funds. Having processed the relevant data, the card association’s clearing house will forward the outcome of the transaction to the acquiring bank which will then transfer the funds due to the merchant’s account. This completes the cycle of operation for payment and is a necessary step for a merchant to ensure timely receipt of the funds due to them from the transaction.
Choosing the best payment acquiring partner
To a cross-border online merchant, the 2 measures of an effective acquirer are payment success and chargeback rates.
Payment Success Rate: Measures how often the issuing bank approves/authorizes a transaction. A high payment rate indicates that more transactions have been successfully processed for payment, ensuring increased revenue.
Chargeback Rate: The rate at which the consumer refuses to pay the issuing bank for the transaction. The international consumer has the right to decline payment for a transaction under dispute and may request for the return of the funds debited from their account.
When a chargeback occurs, the issuing bank can refund the consumer without prior approval from the merchant. The most common reasons for chargebacks include fraudulent transactions, goods not up to the consumer’s expectations, and unsuccessful payments. A high chargeback rate not only indicates increased losses for the merchant but also the presence of fraud risks, reminding us that a high success rate may not be a good thing. To that end, the payment processing organization must possess effective risk assessment and management capabilities that enable the merchant to maximize revenue.
