First Data Global Gateway e4℠
How It Works

How does the Global Gateway e4℠ work?

The First Data Global Gateway e4℠ acts as a messenger to quickly and securely pass payment information between the consumer, the merchant, the bank acquirer and the consumer’s bank to authorize and settle and fund all your card-not-present business. Global Gateway e4℠ takes the complexity out of processing your eCommerce payments.

Global Gateway e4 Transaction Flow

  1. Customer submits payment to merchant through the Real-time Payment Manager, Hosted Checkout, or Webservice API
  2. The transaction data is transmitted to the card issuing bank to obtain an authorization and the response is sent back to the merchant
  3. The merchant delivers the product or service to the customer if the authorization is approved
  4. The transaction is settled by moving the funds from the card issuing bank to the merchant
