NZ Payment Gateways with Host 

First up, what is a payment gateway? A payment gateway is a service that allows merchants to accept credit card and other forms of electronic payment online. It acts as a bridge between the merchant's website and the payment processing network. When a customer wants to make a purchase from a merchant's website, the payment gateway processes the payment and transfers the funds from the customer's bank account to the merchant's account. Payment gateways also handle fraud detection and prevention, and they can provide merchants with detailed reports on their sales and customer data.

Payment gateway provider in New Zealand

Host is one of many payment gateway providers in NZ and integrates with Stripe, Verifone and SmartPay as well as supporting Apple and Google Pay. Host is unique in that it provides an all in one digital order and payment platform allowing businesses with unique requirements to tailor their solution based on their individual needs. For instance, a fast casual restaurant may want to just offer a self ordering kiosk using its existing EFTPOS provider (such as Verifone) and integrate their website ordering as well. With Host, you get payment gateway options that best suit your format as well as the convenience of not switching payment gateways. Unlike most providers, it caters for all digital ordering operations through omni-channel QR code payments, website order and payments, and Kiosk order and payments. Each revenue channel is managed through a central Point of Sale which handles and processes all orders. 

QR code payment NZ

Getting started with a digital ordering platform(s) starts off with an initial free consultation to understand your unique business requirements. From there, hardware such as printers, Kiosks and QR code collateral are arranged prior to your system being launched. If you already have these existing systems, this makes the fit out even easier. Throughout the launching period, you can expect a Host team member to work with you to answer any questions you have and optimise the system right from the start. 

Host is an Auckland based digital order and payment company that provides ordering solutions locally and across New Zealand. Reach out to a Host team member to find out how your business will benefit with a Host solution.
