Besides the payment services, PSP usually suggests additional services among them the power to convert different currencies, to translate languages as well as to protect from fraud. Fundamentally, this service is a third party that enables traders to receive different payments with the help of one channel only. The provider’s major authority is to collaborate with the acquiring bank from the day the client inserts his/her card data until the money occurs in the trader’s account in the financial organization.

In addition, traders have no need to set up the method of payment because this system provides and assists in multiple approaches of payment.
