Virtual terminal software performs two important functions.
First, it permits you to accept and process credit card payments in a real time manner, right at your website. When your customer initiates a transaction, your web site sends credit card information to an Internet Payment Gateway/Virtual Terminal. The gateway passes the information on to the credit card processing network and then forwards the approval back to the virtual terminal in real-time. When configured properly, the entire process takes just seconds to complete.
Second, a virtual terminal can be used to perform all of the same functions of a physical credit card terminal. Through Internet access and a secure website, you'll be able to manually process credit card transactions from orders received offline, issue credits, void transactions, and view your online list of transactions, from any computer in the world.
