To use an electronic payment gateway (LinkPoint, Verisign, Authorizenet.com) - you will also need to have a merchant account as well.
A third party processor (something like 2CO, Paypal, etc) allows you to use their merchant account to accept credit cards. Normally, when you are using a third party processor, you will be directed over to their site to finalize payment.
With a merchant account & an electronic payment gateway, you can accept credit cards on your secure website
