REALTIME PROCESSING - accept credit cards online in real time directly from your web site. Connect via a variety of ways through the shopping cart program of your choice. Sales typically are approved within five seconds and complete online reporting is available.
VIRTUAL TERMINAL - manually enter phone and mail order sales. Virtual terminal supports multiple users and can facilitate recurring billing. Internet access is all that is required.
eCHECK.NET (optional) - accept "electronic" checks from your web site in real time or through the Virtual Terminal. eCheck.Net also supports recurring billing. Checks are normally funded in about five business days. Additional fees apply.
For an online merchant account, your web site must be live and display the products you wish to sell. It must gather credit card info on a secure SSL page.
How it Works:
You can use Authorize.net with the shopping cart of your choice or you can connect directly via a secure link.
If you decide to connect directly (rather than through a shopping cart) you can have your own payment page with your logo and business name. Any consumer who clicks on your secure form link will be presented with a customized order form that matches your web site but that is located on a secure Authorize.Net hard drive. The transition is seamless and invisible (except a hard-to-notice change in the URL address). Once a consumer completes the fields of the order form, all of the information is encoded for secure transmission through the gateway for authorization.
An online merchant account with Authorize.net integrates right into your web site. No worries about downloading software, no large hard drive requirements, and no language-compatibility issues.
