Payment Gateway Comparision Parameters

A quick list of all the criteria that we'll be considering to evaluate the payment gateways

Hosted or integrated
A hosted gateway redirects your customers from your website to the payment processor's platform to collect payment details. In an integrated gateway, your customers will never have to leave your website to type in payment info and to place orders.
Merchant Account
While some gateways need you to apply for a merchant account (a special bank account to accept card payments) to transfer the funds, others will deposit the funds directly in your existing bank account.
Setup fee, cancellation fee, chargeback fee, per-transaction fees, monthly usage charges, etc.
Settlement time
The time taken for the funds to get transferred from the customer's bank account to your (aka the merchant's) bank account, after deducting the payment provider fees.
Security Compliance
The various information security standards that the payment gateway is compliant with, the most important one being the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).
Payment types
The different ways in which the payment gateway will let you accept payments from your customers - credit/debit cards, direct debit, internet banking, wallets, etc. Remember, not everyone would like to pay using cards.
Currencies supported
The various currencies that you can accept payments in, using the said payment gateway. Especially important if you're looking to expand to a global market.
Shopping carts
Plugins/integrations of eCommerce platforms that are readily available for the payment gateway. If you don't want to spend much time to integrate your gateway with your website/store and start accepting payments faster, then this one's for you.
Status page
The payment gateway system's performance record. This reflects the gateway's reliability and availability - in periods of your payment gateway's downtime, you simply won't be able to process payments using it.
