What is Payhalal Payment Gateway


Payhalal-payment-gatewayPayHalal is an Islamic payment gateway (for Islamic e-commerce services) that process payments from CASA e-Money Debit and credit payments for both online and traditional brick-and-mortar stores. The PayHalal Payment gateway facilitates these transactions by transferring key information between payment portals such as web-enabled mobile devices/websites and the front end processor/bank.

How does the PayHalal payment gateway work?

When a customer places an order from an online Islamic store, the PayHalal payment gateway performs several tasks to finalize the transaction:

1. Encryption

The web browser encrypts the data to be sent between it and the vendor’s web server. The gateway then sends the transaction data to the payment processor utilized by the vendor’s acquiring bank.

2. Authorization Request

The payment processor sends the transaction data to a card association. The credit card’s issuing bank views the authorization request and “approves” or “denies.”

3. Filling the Order

The processor then forwards an authorization pertaining to the merchant and consumer to the payment gateway. Once the gateway obtains this response, it transmits it to the website/interface to process the payment. Here, it is interpreted and an appropriate response is generated. This seemingly complicated and lengthy process typically takes only a few seconds at most. At this point, the merchant fills the order.

The PayHalal Payment gateway fulfils a vital role in the Islamic e-commerce transaction process, authorizing the payment between merchants and customers.

The PayHalal payment data processor analyzes and transmits transaction data. Next, it authorizes the transfer of funds between buyers and sellers.
