The modern era is all about digital transactions which are simple, easy and also cost-effective. You as a client need to have a debit or credit card or access to net banking which can help you transfer the fund online or pay the buyer with the swipe of the card.  In the process of card swiping you can go with either a debit card or a credit card.

The card has a magnetic chip where the data of the client is stored in a digital form which is transferred to the system, and the system automatically validates the payment. In the transaction with the help of a debit card, you need to have sufficient fund in the account while in the credit card you need to have enough credit left in the card account so that the transaction can take place.

The transaction:

It is much interesting to know how the balance is transferred to the merchant account.  The process of payment is simple and does not involve any transaction to be done by offline mode. The buyer can choose the product on a website or at a retail outlet where the card swipe machine is available. The buyer handovers the card to the merchant, who may swipe the card or insert it inside the swipe machine so that the data on the chip can be captured by it. Once the detail on the card is captured, the credit card processing takes place, where the system matches the amount of the bill with the available credit on the card.

The same process happens with the debit card also, but in debit card, one has to enter the pin number to authenticate the transaction. Both of the cards can be used for online payment processing on any website or by payment through a phone.

Why go for card payment?

There are benefits associated with the online payment processing that make the transaction hassle-free. Payment via credit or debit card is easy and safe. One does not need to carry cash everywhere which can be a little tedious and risky job. The credit card processing is also free of charge in a number of accounts. The cards are easy to carry in a wallet and also risk-free as it cannot be used by any unauthorized person if necessary precautions are taken.

The merchant account can show the balance that can be matched with his daily sales, and as the payment comes to the account, he can easily pay to the suppliers from the account only. One can also place certain restrictions on cards such as credit or debit limits which can help him to avoid unnecessary spending. As the machines for card swapping are easily available at various places now, one can use the same without any worry. In case of loss of card or broken card one can get it blocked and get a new card from the issuer bank as per the bank policy.
