A payment system is an automated set of processes (usually done with computers) for accepting cash-substitutes as money. Since the rise of credit and debit cards and the Internet, most businesses in the U.S. rely on some type of payment system. In addition to the traditional credit card processing services, payment systems can include electronic checks, EFT, mobile payments, and technologies specific to the Internet like digital wallets, e-cash and PayPal.
