in a normal credit card transaction:
Merchant runs credit card through the point of sale unit
(Terminal). The amount of the sale is either hand-entered or
transmitted by the cash register.
The Terminal transmits the credit card data and sales amount
sale to their acquiring bank (network) for authorization.
The acquiring bank that processes the transaction, routes the
authorization request to the card-issuing bank. The credit card
number identifies type of card, issuing bank, and the cardholder’s
account (if debit).
If the cardholder has enough credit to cover the sale amount,
the issuing bank authorizes the transaction and generates an
authorization code. The code is sent back to the acquiring bank.
On a Debit Card transaction, the issuing bank puts a hold on
the cardholder’s account for the amount of the sale. Note that the
cardholder’s account has not been actually charged yet.
The acquiring bank processes the transaction, and then sends
the approval or denial code to the merchant’s point of sale unit.
Each point of sale device has a separate terminal ID for credit card
processors to be able to route data back to that particular unit.
A receipt is printed out by the point of sale unit or cash
register. The merchant asks the buyer to sign the receipt (merchant
copy) for their records.
At the end of the day day, the merchant closes their point of
sale unit by a process called Batch Out, Notifying the processor
that the merchant is done with all transaction for the day.
