Many governments accept credit and debit card payments for the variety of taxes and fees imposed on citizens and users. In the public sector there are a variety of special considerations that must be addressed if governments wish to accept credit and debit cards as payment methods. 

Some of the key considerations related to accepting credit and debit cards include:

  • Whether cards can be accepted for all or some government services
  • Understanding the costs and rules that are in place for governments to accept credit/debit cards
  • Managing upgrades and opportunities presented through technology changes
