What is a merchant account?

A merchant account is a type of bank account that is responsible for handling the funds transferred from a credit card, debit card, or bank account (your customers) to a merchant (you).

What is a payment gateway?

A payment gateway is a middle man that communicates between a merchant account and a third party application, like Wufoo. The gateway authorizes payments, validates credit cards, looks out for fraud, and provides an interface for you to view your payment transactions.

Why do some gateways require a merchant account and others do not?

Some gateways, like PayPal, include both a merchant account and a gateway in a single solution. The all in one solutions tend to be a little more expensive and less feature rich, but they're very easy to set up and great for beginners.

What does seamless integration mean?

A seamless integration means that the entire payment process is handled on Wufoo.com, without the need to redirect people to a third party for payment. If a payment enabled form is embedded into your website, then your users will never have to leave your site in order to pay.
