The easiest way for a business to get up and running with their credit card acceptance abilities is through the First Data Global Gateway e4 Merchant Account. Integrated with hundreds of shopping carts and ecommerce applications, Global Gateway e4 provides the merchant with everything needed to start accepting credit cards with no holdups or complications.
Some of the benefits and features of the Global Gateway e4 are:
- Multi-currency capabilities
- Automatic recurring billing
- Free setup
- No application fees
- Integration with hundreds of shopping carts
- Free developer APIs for custom solutions
- Simplified PCI compliance Tokenization to store card profiles

This gateway provides merchants with a solution that is completely “hands off.” It is non-storing, and is in full compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS). Cardholder data exposure is eliminated for merchants, as well as the requirement for SSL certificates. With PCI compliance being such a critical and mandatory requirement, this is a significant advantage of the gateway.
The Global Gateway e4 system can be customized. This is done according to the user interface requirements of the merchant. Cardholders have the same user interface experience during payment as when they are shopping on the merchants’ sites. This is because the colors, logos and wording can be sent to the gateway in HTML format. Other options that are included with the gateway are receipt notification emails to the cardholder and/or the merchant, and customized messaging for receipt of emails.
Access to the First Data e4 Global Gateway Real-time Payment Manager (RPM) functions such as Reports and Virtual Point of Sale are included with this gateway as well.
The First Data e4 Global Gateway is just another step in the direction of originality and customer service that First Data has implemented to improve on the service that is already the best available. It assures that the merchants’ credit card processing needs are enabled in the easiest, hassle free manner possible.
