What is a gateway or payment gateway?
Payment gateways such as PayU Latam and PayPal allow thousands of merchants worldwide to receive online payments for their products and services.
In Colombia, PayU offers payments with credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners, and Crédito Fácil Codensa); bank debit through PSE and debit cards; and also, means of payment in cash through Baloto, Efecty, and Your Network. PayPal, for its part, is ideal for receiving payments from abroad, where the platform has more than 300 million users.
