What exactly is an acquirer?

An acquiring bank, also known as a merchant bank, enables retailers to use various conventional and alternative payment methods by concluding acceptance contracts. During a payment process, the acquirer establishes the connection to the customer’s bank (the issuing bank), approves the payment, and ensures that the money is credited to the retailer’s account.
