The disability rights movement in Australia has a rich history, with people representing a variety of different interests and disabilities coming together to achieve common goals over many decades. In doing so, the movement has learnt that to succeed means to represent the interests of people with differing abilities, and consequently, success has been greater for some groups than others. A quick test is to ask people about accommodations for people with a disability; the most common responses will be ramps or parking spaces. Yet neither of these were designed for people who are blind, nor people with intellectual disability. In fact, curb cuts came into existence to support a growing number of veterans returning from war with physical disability.
A payment gateway is an e-commerce application service provider that authorizes payments between a merchant and the customer, typically for e-businesses, online retailers or traditional brick and mortar. It enables merchants to process multiple transaction types including electronic check (ACH, credit card and debit card) transactions in either real time or batch mode. Payment gateways protect credit cards details encrypting sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, to ensure that information passes securely between the customer and the merchant and also between merchant and payment processor.
