*What is a third-party payment?
Third-party payment refers to the online payment mode provided by an independent organization with certain strength and credit guarantees. That organization has a contract with major banks to provide the transaction payment platform that interfaces with the bank payment settlement system. In the third-party payment mode, buyers use the account provided by the third-party platform to make payment (payment to a third party), and the third party notifies the seller and requests the delivery. After the buyer receives and inspects the goods, the buyer will notify the third party; then the third party transfers the payment to the seller's account.
The advantage of third-party payment is security because only the payment intermediary has the credit card information and account information of the buyer, which can greatly reduce the risk of leakage of personal information.
