How to prepare the website for accepting payments
To accept payments via the Internet, the company’s website must meet certain requirements. The list of requirements for the Internet site is formed not only on the rules established by financial organizations (such as acquiring banks or card organizations – Visa, MasterCard, etc.), but also taking into account the criteria that make payments acceptance more profitable and easy management.
Compliance with these requirements allows to get a quick approval of the website by each of the process participants (bank, payment service provider, …), to make the website more informative and convenient for the consumer, as well as to ensure high conversion and the minimum number of return transactions.

Provide a complete description of goods and services that you offer. Consumers should have a clear understanding of what they buy and what they pay money for.
If you sell clothes, you should specify size, color, style … If you sell electronic devices, specify technical requirements, type of connectors, availability of batteries, etc. Each product requires a complete description of goods or services in order to fully understand the business case of both a consumer and a bank acquirer that provides payments acceptance on your website.
Price of goods or services placement on the website of online store
Your visitors should be able to find out the exact price and currency of the transaction before purchasing a product or ordering a service at your online store. If you are focused on the foreign market and get payments in foreign currency, you need to be able to specify the currency in rubles, since your company is registered in the Russian Federation and must comply with the laws of the Russian Federation.
In addition, if you have not explicitly indicated the following information elsewhere on your Internet site, you should include it in terms of service, where you must clearly indicate all measures taken to ensure the security of transactions (for example SSL encryption).
The return policy must clearly indicate the procedure of returning and canceling an order, returning goods, etc. Such information should be easily available before purchase.
You can include such statements in the terms of service, although in most cases it is better if the refund policy is put into a separate document (sub-page), thus it will be easier for consumers to find it.
