Gateways are separated into two categories: Merchant and Non-Merchant. Typically, Merchant gateways require a merchant account and payment is all handled seamlessly through Blesta. Non-Merchant gateways usually do not require a merchant account and payment is processed offsite on the gateways website.

Installing Gateways

To use a gateway, it first must be installed under [Settings] > [System] > [Payment Gateways] > Available. Once installed, the gateway can be configured and used. It will then be accessible under [Settings] > [System] > [Payment Gateways] > Installed by clicking the "Manage" button for the desired gateway. 


Merchant gateways are used to process credit card or ACH transactions seamlessly to the end-user. These gateways typically require a merchant account through a bank.
