With science and technology reaching the pinnacle of success, there is hardly any field that has escaped the wonders made by technology. In the financial sector, where money plays the most essential role for every day needs like shopping or for any other purchases, technology has made some remarkable progress by inventing plastic money. The credit cards or debit cards are used by most of the people, whether belonging to the higher strata or the middle class society. People are now able to buy whatever they wish even when they don’t have hard cash with them on the spot. This is only possible with the use of credit or debit cards that are directly related to the person’s bank account.

A merchant account and credit card machines are a must for providing this service. The dealer would not accept credit cards unless there’s a merchant account. Merchant accounts can be obtained from banks or any other financial institution.

It is a face-to-face transaction. Credit cards can be accepted through computers or on websites with the help of Internet processing. The PC credit card processing software is required for this purpose.
