The emergence of the internet and information technology (IT) has transformed several industry verticals. One of such transformations is witnessed in the banking sector and particularly in transactions. The evolution of credit and debit cards has established the trend of a cashless economy. Moreover, the growing adoption of the internet across the banking industry has led to the evolution of online banking and fund transfer. On a similar track, several banks and start-ups have developed online payment gateways. A payment gateway is a trusted third-party application that authorizes transactions. The online payment gateways successfully provide end-to-end solutions for a seamless customer experience. They are the key medium to help merchants receive card payments in both situations, i.e., card-present and card non-present transactions. It supports online payment on the Internet or any other electronic channel such as Interactive kiosk, Voice Recognition (IVR), and call center with secure protection and integrity.

As the number of internet users increases, more and more people can transfer funds online. Moreover, the growing demand for a better customer experience is augmenting the growth of the market during the forecast period. Online payment helps the merchant in improving customer experience and increasing merchant revenues. The data generated from the transactions through online payments offers merchants with detailed customer insights, which helps in improving different aspects of business, comprising decisions associated with marketing, promotions, and customer service. However, the lack of global standards for cross-border payments is majorly restraining the global online payment gateway market. Online payment gateway vendors are not able to expand their businesses owing to the dearth of a single universal global payment system, the absence of global standards, and different government regulations. On the other hand, the progressive regulatory reforms in the field of digital payment are anticipated to offer favorable opportunities for the payment gateway market in the future.

But the industry’s stability and potential for innovation will play an invaluable role in restarting the economy to the new normal.
