Merchant account and gateway set up in one
“Getting a merchant account and gateway set up for your website can be quite difficult, but with Digital River I was taken through every step of the process by their hands-on sales team,” said Chris Williams, owner of Dark Prism Accessories, a quality alternative jewellery and accessories shop. “They made it easy and simple to go from my initial application through approval and go-live.”
