With the introduction of a simple, secure and innovative online payment gateway, the acceptance of online payment transactions for a variety of e-commerce needs has been made easy with Bank Alfalah, it added.

Alfa Payment Gateway (APG) offers key benefits such as instant digital on-boarding, no set up cost or annual fee, lowest per transaction charges, multiple payment modes, all bank credit/debit cards, Bank Alfalah accounts and wallets, 3D secure and fraud management along with the merchant financing.
