What is e-Path?

e-Path is a manual credit card payment gateway that allows you to accept credit cards and charge them into your virtual terminal, EFTPOS terminal or smartphone/tablet card charging app.

e-Path does not transact credit cards "live" and blindly on the open Internet without you knowing like "real-time" online payment processing gateways do. e-Path temporarily stores credit card authorizations in a highly encrypted state until they are retrieved by the business owner for processing offline, after which those credit card details are deleted and no longer stored by e-Path.

The transaction is performed by the business owner entering card details into their own credit card processing facility so it's a manual process.

When you use e-Path to accept credit cards via your store you are PCI-DSS compliant online because the e-Path gateway is handling credit card data online. e-Path is a worldwide service.
