Online Payment Gateways

Taking payments online is a basic element of an e-commerce website| but which online payment system?

Taking payments online is a basic element of an e-commerce website, but which online payment system is right for you?


The most common payment systems Realnet use for clients are SagePay & PayPal as we find these match most clients needs. SagePay offers a seamless method of taken credit card details but processing fees can sometimes present as an obstacle to some organisations.

If processing and set up fees need to be kept to a minimum, PayPal is a great solution as it offers the security and peace of mind for the website owner, but also and importantly, the potential buyer.

There are still many users of the internet that are wary of typing their credit card details into a website, so the presence of a familiar brand such as PayPal and SagePay gives the reassurance many people look for.

An alternative payment system that Realnet have recently worked with is Global Iris.  Global Iris has an affiliation with HSBC and is the preferred payment system of our client Knight Strip Metals.

Knight Strip Metals have introduced a new Off-Cuts Service through their new website KSM Direct. This is an exciting new service that allows organisations to purchase metal off-cuts.

The off-cut range is:
Copper & Alloys
Nickel & Alloys
Plated Strip
Spring/Mild Steel
Stainless Steel

Realnet would like to wish Knight Strip Metals all the very best with their new website and also thank the team at Global Iris for their help in making the payment system a smooth integration.
