Authorize.net provides the complex infrastructure and security necessary to ensure fast, reliable, and secure transmission of transaction data. Authorize.net manages the routing of transactions just like a traditional credit card swipe machine you find in the physical retail world; however, Authorize.net uses the Internet instead of a phone line.
The Authorize.net Payment Gateway is available 24/7 for processing transactions. We also offer a number of value-adding services to assist merchants in managing their businesses and protecting themselves from fraud. Additionally, the free, Authorize.net Verified Merchant Seal can be added to a merchant's website to help build consumer confidence.
Merchants can manage their transactions, configure account settings, view account statements, generate reports, and more. Many features and options can be tailored to specific merchant business models. Since the payment gateway is a browser-based, hosted solution, there is no software to install or maintain.
To get started, submit an online application and an expert payment specialist will contact you shortly to complete the setup and activation of your account.
