Who stands to benefit from employing PayU Enterprise payment solutions?

The surge in e-commerce and online transactions, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, has reshaped the global market landscape, particularly in burgeoning economies. This growth presents a golden opportunity for businesses of all sizes, from large-scale enterprises to nimble SMEs, to tap into a rapidly expanding global customer base. However, venturing into international markets entails navigating a labyrinth of local regulations and consumer preferences, posing a significant challenge to seamless payment acceptance across borders.

Enterprises operating on a global scale quickly realize the necessity of integrating various local payment acquirers, card networks, and alternative payment methods into their “payments stack” – the intricate web of financial layers crucial for transaction facilitation. Yet, this integration must occur swiftly and continuously to keep pace with market expansion efforts.

At the heart of this intricate process lies the payment gateway, serving as the linchpin between the customer-facing checkout experience and the intricate backend operations. Amidst the whirlwind of global expansion and the pursuit of new market opportunities, a robust global payment gateway like PayU Enterprise emerges as a vital ally. By seamlessly orchestrating transactions and ensuring a consistent end-user experience, PayU Enterprise empowers merchants to navigate the complexities of international commerce with confidence, facilitating smooth transactions while maintaining customer satisfaction across diverse markets.

When should merchants have an advanced payment gateway?

In the realm of online commerce spanning multiple countries, merchants are presented with a myriad of options for their payment gateway. Initially, a basic payment gateway suffices for fledgling e-commerce ventures, facilitating transactions through a select few global payment providers.

However, such simplistic solutions may prove inadequate for merchants aspiring to broaden their business horizons. A basic gateway typically lacks access to diverse alternative payment methods and fails to optimize approval rates or integrate value-enhancing functionalities effectively.

For merchants with global ambitions or those eyeing expansion within their own markets, this limitation can be constraining. The prevailing model of payment stacks often becomes fragmented, piecing together disparate payment layers, exacerbating management complexities, and hindering payment optimization. Concurrently, the landscape of payment authorization and processing grows increasingly intricate, particularly with the surge in card-not-present transactions on a global scale.

In essence, whether operating domestically or expanding globally, online merchants aiming for business growth encounter escalating complexities and multifaceted payment challenges. As transaction volumes and geographic reach expand, these complexities can transform into liabilities. Traditional payment stacks, laden with fragmented layers and diverse software systems atop legacy infrastructures, lack the flexibility, scalability, and functionality necessary to optimize payment flows, ensure regulatory compliance, and balance stringent security standards with the imperative of high approval rates.

Payment Gateway vs. Payment Orchestration

Introducing payment orchestration—a contemporary concept in the payments sphere that encapsulates familiar functionalities and features, albeit with a technologically advanced twist. Payment orchestration encompasses the automation, coordination, and management of payment flows.

Harnessing advanced technology to bolster payment approval rates and streamline transaction processing, payment orchestration empowers merchants to maximize revenue and augment profit margins. Unlike traditional gateways, payment orchestration integrates various facets of the payment stack, augmenting capabilities with advanced data analytics, AI-driven routing, and more.

In essence, payment orchestration represents an evolution beyond the conventional payment gateway, leveraging enhanced technological features to deliver added value to merchants. With an expanded scope of potential checkout options and heightened complexity inherent in each transaction, the fundamental proposition of payment orchestration—maximizing approval rates and enhancing efficiency within an intricate payments landscape—resonates increasingly with each new customer opportunity.

What key functionalities should an advanced payment gateway have?

An advanced payment gateway/payment orchestration platform should have the following key functionalities, all consolidated into a single-layered architecture:


  • Smart transaction routing
  • Ease of connectivity to various payment methods
  • Advanced analytics & reporting
  • Security & compliance


The above features are an essential part of PayU’s advanced payment gateway – and a core component of our USP to merchants.  Read more about the importance of each feature when it comes to managing payments.



Smart Transaction Routing

Smart transaction routing offers greater control and freedom over their payment flows by enabling merchants to change their routing configurations on the go, while also offering insightful suggestions according to its AI-based routing logic. With the ability to configure transactions based on pre-defined rules, merchants can rest assured knowing that their payments are being routed in the way that is most likely to maximize approval rates and minimize transaction fees at each layer.



Ease of connectivity to payment layers and more online payment methods

Using an advanced payment gateway is of particular importance to merchants who must work with multiple providers to deliver the best customer experience. In contrast to fragmented and multi-layered payment architectures, payment orchestration provides one entry point to the entire payment process. New payment providers, payment methods, and currencies can be added quickly and without significant cost. This provides merchants with the flexibility to connect to a multitude of endpoints through a single API – saving time, money, and making it easier to move into new markets faster.



Advanced Analytics & Reporting

In contrast to a basic payment gateway, payment orchestration serves not merely as a ‘portal’ which routes payments to their optimal end destination (such as processing via specific providers/acquirers/alternative payment methods), but also as a highly advanced platform which can aggregate and extract insightful data from real-time as well as previous payment activity – giving merchants useful information to optimize their business. Using PayU’s global payment orchestration platform, merchants can channel these insights into the other tools we offer, for example by creating rules for Smart Routing or by setting up our automated Instant Retry Feature.



Security and Compliance

In addition to the various optimization feature offered in payment orchestration, an advanced payment gateway must also offer a shield of added security to merchants and peace of mind when it comes to trusting that compliance matters are taken care of. Whether by reducing PCI scope via tokenization, or through providing up-to-date 3DS optimized flows to ensure that payments are as successful as possible, a primary goal of payment orchestration is to simply complex payment processes while making the life of the merchant easier – especially where security and compliance are involved.

The PayU difference

A payment gateway in its most basic form is a terminal whose job it is to encrypt a user’s card data and route payment requests to their end-destination via a provider or acquirer – one that should, in turn, facilitate the objective of getting those payments approved.


The added value of payment orchestration is that it offers additional benefits and features atop of the usual ‘routing’ — for example straightforward and quick integration with a variety of popular local and global payment methods, advanced payment optimization features for optimal transaction approval rates, as well as all the latest payment security & compliance features that are set to protect merchants’ payment stacks from external threats. Merchants can also create and download cross-provider data and customized reports, using these insights to optimize payment performance.


As an industry-leading payment orchestration platform, PayU offers a plug-and-play solution for merchants of all sizes, in all industries and markets, who are looking for a payment services provider that will ensure a great checkout experience for their customers while optimizing the processing of online payments and managing all of the operational and technical complexities involved.

As you focus on the global growth of your business, take advantage of PayU’s payment orchestration solution to optimize revenue, lower transaction costs, and manage all payment security and compliance requirements seamlessly and securely through via one global platform.

Payment gateway FAQs (6)

What’s the difference between a payment gateway and payment processor?

The payment gateway is the link between the frontend and backend of a payment. It is the interface through which the customer pays and through which the merchant collects payment. The payment processor, meanwhile, works behind the scenes to complete all of the necessary components of the transaction. Many payment gateways offer payment processing functionalities, and many payment processors also include the payment gateway. PayU’s platform integrates our own payment gateway and processing capabilities with those of partners to enable merchants to accept and optimize payments anywhere in the world through a single connection.

Are there limitations to a payment gateway?

The most common limitations for a payment gateway are typically related to either payment methods or geography. Many payment gateways only support payments in certain countries or regions of the world. Others only offer the ability to pay with certain payment methods – typically the major global ones. PayU’s payment gateway is unique in that it offers a single point of connection to hundreds of global and local online payment methods and to any global market.

Can you reduce your PCI scope with a payment gateway?

Payment gateways with advanced payment security and compliance features can help merchants to reduce PCI scope through tokenization and other functionalities. In a tokenized transaction, the customer’s actual payment data is replaced with a token, shifting the responsibility for safeguarding customer data from the merchant to the payment provider.

How does a payment gateway work?

A payment gateway is the link between different components of a payment transaction. The payment gateway’s job is to collect payment data, encrypt it, and send it to the payment processing network. Some payment gateway technologies also provide built-in payment processing capabilities, as well as advanced security and payment optimization features.
