Growing use of smartphones for online payments is driving the online payment gateway market creating a highly competitive landscape.


The global online payment gateway ecosystem consists of various global, regional, and local service providers that are continuously evolving to enhance their market position. Intense competition and rapid advances in technology to cope with the security concerns are key factors that aid the market growth. The service providers compete based on cost, efficiency, security, and reliability of the services to sustain in the market. It is important for the service providers to provide a cost-efficient and secure online payment gateway, to maintain their market position and gain a competitive advantage.


Vendors in the online payment gateway market are focusing towards improving their services and expanding geographically into the under-developed and developing economies. PayPal Holdings, Inc., Visa, Inc., First Data Corp., Naspers Ltd., and Global Payments, Inc. are the major companies in the market, competing in terms of customization, reliability, price, and technology. Their primary focus is on the development of improved online payment gateways for faster and secure transaction processes. Although international players are dominating the market, regional and foreign players such as PagBrasil and CASHU with small market shares also have a prominent presence here. The major players may strengthen their presence worldwide through the acquisition of local and regional players for expanding their services in those regions during the forecast period. The improvement of the global economic scenario combined with technological advancement in the emerging economies like Brazil, Argentina, and other under-developed countries, is likely to fuel the market growth, thereby making it an ideal time to expand online payment gateway market geographically and increase the global market share.


PayPal Holdings, Inc. is one of the prominent players in the online payment gateway market, holding 9.57% share. PayPal provides businesses with a platform enabling various payment methods for transactions. This has enabled PayPal to gain a competitive advantage in the online payment market in terms of service and user accessibility, and hence, is leading the online payment gateway market. Moreover, PayPal focuses on expanding its market reach by partnering with local banks and attracting customers to use their services. PayPal has also started offering customers with attractive offers such as cashback, using advertisements on different media platforms.


Visa, Inc. held a share of 8.66% in 2017. Visa is completely into commerce and has a huge network of consumers, merchants, financial institutions, businesses, strategic partners, and government entities. To provide its customers with an efficient online payment platform, the company has acquired Authorize.Net, a payment gateway that allows e-commerce providers to accept payments through credit cards and electronic checks directly on their site.


First Data Corp. held a share of 7.44% in 2017. First Data’s strategic acquisitions have enabled the expansion of its market reach to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, partnerships with e-commerce companies have provided First Data with a network full of retailers and financial institutions, enabling it to penetrate the online payment gateway market.


Naspers Ltd. held a share of 5.5% in 2017. Naspers acquired PayU to provide its users with a secure, anti-fraud payment platform. Recently, PayU launched a new platform, PayUnow, for small and medium businesses (SMBs). This new platform is expected to enable offline businesses to create an online identity with their own business page, where they can accept digital payments directly into their bank accounts.


Global Payments, Inc. held a share of 5.09% in 2017, providing its services across a variety of channels to merchants and partners in countries across the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Acquisition of Realex Payments, one of Europe's largest and fastest growing payment gateways, has enabled Global Payments to provide omnichannel solutions that combine gateway services, payment service provisioning, and merchant acquiring across Europe.


The service providers with better technical and financial resources focus on innovation to develop highly secure payment platforms that enable users with easy-to-understand interface to stay competitive in the market. Therefore, service providers must innovate and make use of new technologies to stay abreast of the emerging technologies that could affect the continuing competitiveness of their services in the market.
