Sterling Gateway

Sterling’s Gateway quickly and securely authorizes payments for web-based and e-commerce merchants.

The Sterling Gateway


Sterling Gateway supports all industries (retail, restaurant, eCommerce and MOTO) and all card types, including credit, debit (signature/PINless), EBT and gift. It safeguards customer information, improves cash flow with automatic recurring payments, eliminates data entry errors by storing customer data in a secure CardVault, and offers a variety of implementation options.

In addition, Sterling Gateway uses tokenization for secure storage of cardholder information and point-to-point encryption (P2PE) to protect sensitive cardholder data during the authorization and approval process. Sterling Gateway supports several hardware solutions by both Magtek and IDTech, which allow the software to use devices that encrypt the cardholder’s information at the point of interaction (POI).

Sterling Gateway provides a number of integration options to best fit your technical infrastructure. This includes POS, ECR, tablet POS, mobile POS (mPOS) and eCommerce/shopping cart implementations.
