Prize: One book of choice by SAMS
|Most e-commerce sites have to resort to a third party gateway service to handle the payments of the products or services being sold.
There are many payment gateway provider companies. Each one provides different means to connect and interchange payment transaction information. This makes it hard for developers to implement the payment interface systems. It may also become frustrating for developers that are not sure about which payment service is good enough for their needs, as it imposes a difficulty to switch to a better provider later.
This class provides a single API that abstracts the access to several distinct payment gateways, not only making it easier to switch between payment gateways without the need to change the e-commerce site code, but also making it simpler to use different payment gateways as alternatives for when a primary gateway is down or not working for some other reason.
