Gaming Merchant Account

What is Gaming and Online Gaming?

The realm of online gaming encapsulates the engagement in interactive digital entertainment across internet or network-enabled platforms, encompassing personal computers, gaming consoles, mobile devices, and virtual reality systems. It serves as a global nexus for players to engage in collaborative or competitive gameplay experiences. IntegralPay acknowledges the diverse landscape of online gaming, which encompasses a spectrum of genres including first-person shooters, massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), sports simulations, strategy games, and casual diversions. Notable examples include renowned titles such as World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Fortnite, and Minecraft.

Furthermore, within the online gaming sphere exists a subset known as real money gaming, where participants have the opportunity to wager monetary stakes, subject to regulatory frameworks varying across jurisdictions. The online gaming industry is witnessing exponential growth, boasting a vast player base and generating substantial revenues globally. Beyond gameplay itself, online gaming communities foster interaction through chat functionalities, content sharing, and engagement in virtual economies. In delineating the landscape of online gaming, it is pertinent to recognize two primary categories: eGaming and iGaming, each with its distinct characteristics and implications within the broader ecosystem.

Why Gaming Merchants need to apply for a Merchant Account


Growth of Gaming Industry

With the video gaming industry projected to grow by 14.5% annually until 2026, there’s a significant opportunity to tap into this expanding market. By having a merchant account, businesses can efficiently process payments from gamers who are purchasing digital goods, in-game items, subscriptions, or other related services.


Payment Gateway Services

With the necessity for gaming payment gateway services to facilitate upfront token purchases and instant checkout, a merchant account becomes indispensable. This ensures that online gaming merchants can effectively cater to customer needs, streamline transactions, and optimize revenue generation in a competitive market environment.


Increased Customer Satisfaction

Mobile-friendly payment pages and one-click purchases are invaluable tools in catering to gamers’ preferences, streamlining the payment process, and maximizing convenience. By providing seamless and efficient payment experiences, businesses can foster greater satisfaction among gamers and increase customer loyalty.
