This article is a step-by-step walk-through on setting up the QuickBooks Payments Gateway. A payment gateway allows your online store to connect to your merchant bank account. It acts as a “virtual terminal,” as apposed to a card-swipe terminal. For more information on payment gateways and merchant accounts, see: How to Accept Credit Cards.
