Each individual daily deal website tends to use a different payment gateway service. The main ones are:
- Groupon- Global Payments
- LivingSocial - Paypal, Visa Checkout, and Masterpass
- SlickDeals - Outside payment service
There is no need to sign up to every one of these services to pay for or sell daily deals. Choosing the best online payment gateway
for your needs will depend upon your services, location, or bank. PayUmoney, for example, is an ideal service for vendors based in India.
Once you find the best payment gateway service for your requirements, you can stick with them for all of your domestic and international payments. Buying from other websites also only requires your own bank account details as the payment gateway will process your transaction even if you don't have an account with them. The large daily deal companies use third party services which are optimized for a range of different countries, bank cards, and foreign currencies.
