    You can browse payment processors companies. They accept payments for you paid by online buyers.

    This answer is ONLY relevant in the US. Most of the answers here are INCORRECT. I think your question is "How can I become a certified Third Party Processor with the card associations" as this will allow you to be the organization who actually 'routes' the data (order/payment info) to the processing networks. PayPal and StormPay are 'Aggregators' and NOT processors. Authorize.net and eProcessingNetwork.com are Payment Gateways The Gateway itself does not issue merchant accounts (this is done by the acquier, aka... acquiering member bank), it just routes the information to the proper places (frontend network - such as First Data or TSYS/Vital) for the authorization.

    The requirements for data security and capital requirements are noted on both the Visa and MasterCard websites.

    You have to be approved and set up a merchant account with an external company like authorize.net. Then you must learn how to integrate their payment gateway with your shopping cart system on your web site. I've set up several of these for clients.
