Curious about how your business is funded for a transaction after a customer makes a payment?

The Story of Payment Processing - Payments 101

  1. Your customer swipes or inserts their debit or credit card or uses mobile pay technology, such as ApplePay®.
  2. The terminal or mobile processing solution uses advanced security features to transfer payment data to Elavon.
  3. Elavon facilitates authorization from the payment card issuer, i.e., the customers’ bank, credit union, financial institution. The Authorization response is based on the cardholder account status and available credit.
  4. Our network acquires the funds from your customer and transfers the amount into your banking account as part of the established settlement process.
