Today, a large number of online shoppers prefer to pay online rather than with Cash on Delivery. If you have an online store, it is important that you accept online payments to ensure maximum sales.

 

A payment gateway acts as the mediator between your online store and the payment processor and provides your customers with a secure and seamless transaction platform. An efficient payment gateway increases customer loyalty and sales. GlobalLinker’s eCommerce platform – LINKER.store - provides you with two integrated payment gateway options: Razorpay and CCAvenue

 

Here is a step-by-step guide to activating them.
