This is a mechanism that helps to minimize the purchase process. If a customer has already purchased in an online store (or has created an account and provided their card data), a merchant may allow them to make next purchases without filling in the information again.
The main idea behind this solution is to simplify the purchase process and improve its experience, which results in greater income for the merchant.

Card Data Storage are free at PayLane; merchants are only charged the regular transaction fees.
Of course you can! All you have to do is integrate with us through API! Let your customers create accounts (or upgrade them) on your website and their information will automatically be stored.
Sometimes even when someone creates an account, they don't fill in their card information until the first transaction. However, once they do it, is stored and next purchases can be done by just by simply logging in and continuing to do shopping.
It`s very convenient – you can log in in the application, from wherever you like and you can make a purchase without filling in the log payment forms.
Recurring payments (also called subscriptions, recurring billing, etc.) is a mechanism that enables a charge on a customer's card regularly without engaging neither the customer nor the merchant.
It's a perfect payment solution for all kinds of subscriptions, including web applications (accounts paid monthly or annually), magazine subscriptions, bills, etc.
Merchants often use recurring payments to charge their customers a constant amount within specific time periods (e.g. monthly), but it's also possible to use recurring payments with variable amounts or time periods if it suits your business model.
Recurring payments are free at PayLane; merchants are only charged the regular transaction fees.
Transaction currencies are the currencies accepted by a merchant. Customers pay for goods in transaction currencies.
Settlement currencies are the currencies in which merchants receive payouts from their merchant accounts.
It's best to determine how many currency conversions you can expect and choose the settlement currency to minimize them, this way you will avoid unnecessary costs.
For example, if you expect that most of your payments will be in pounds sterling, it will probably be quite reasonable to set up a merchant account in GBP. It may be also be good to open a company account in GBP as well - this way you'll not only minimize currency conversions during purchases, but also avoid them during the payout.

Apart from payment methods that are well known around the world, there are also many payment methods popular on specific markets or in specific countries.

Automatic Payment Optimizer is for big merchants with multiple accounts, in different banks.
If a bank declines a transaction, APO automatically begins to check other accounts in other banks (or just one if all of them are located in it) until it reaches a bank that approves the transaction.
MOTO stands for Mail Order Telephone Order and is a type of card payment. Instead of purchasing on a website, a customer may phone the retailer, place an order, and pay by providing card data over the phone (the same can be done with mail). It's another type of card not present transaction, appreciated for its convenience and mobility (consumers don't need Internet access if they choose to pay with a phone call).
A Virtual Terminal is usually a payment form that allows the initiation of a payment. Such forms are often used with MOTO services (a person receiving the order via a phone call uses the Virtual Terminal to perform a payment on the card holder's behalf). PayLane offers its own Virtual Terminal for merchants - you can find it in the Merchant Panel.
