Authorize.Net

Authorize.net is reliable and I feel confident that customers' information is protected. The security protocols used by Authorize.net appear to be as good, and probably better than many credit card payment processors. However, the initial setup process was very difficult. I distinctly recall getting up and running as being very cumbersome and time-consuming. I also was disappointed with how the processing and deposit of payments were not consistent. I distinctly remember regretting the decision to go with Authorize.net. However, as mentioned before, with the time and effort required to get the account set up and running, I refused to go through the process again and try a different provider.

Google Pay

I have only scratched the surface of Google Pay's capabilities because we do not have a physical store. I believe the benefits would increase for locations where smartphone payment is already underway in physical stores that also do online sales. If your business deals with very little foot traffic or does not offer a variety of payment choices, do more research before adding Google Pay as an option — Google Pay is an eager competitor to Apple Pay, and therefore offers businesses opportunities to run promotions and other incentives to adopt Google Pay currently, so it still may be worthwhile to smaller businesses. Google Pay is about to implement a banking option, which will likely add to the number of users and therefore excited customers with Google Pay to spend with you. The web implementation seems simple and should be a good addition to websites where multiple payment types are available.

Pros

Authorize.Net

  • Very smooth workflow to authorizing, capturing, voiding, and refunding charges. This can all be done via API calls, or through their online dashboard.
  • Their AVS settings for validating credit cards are substantial and have been reliable in ensuring that our customers cards are being used safely and properly.
  • Their uptime and response times are very good in general. The only issues we ever have communicating with their services is when our connection quality is compromised.

Google Pay

  • They provide good rewards like cash back offers and gift vouchers.
  • Easy to pay by scanning the QR code.
  • Help us to find best recharges for our mobile.
  • Easy to pay electricity bill.
  • Will notify us if our validity expires on recharges.
  • Self money transfer, we can transfer money to other account if both the accounts are linked with Google Pay.
  • We can check balance by enter the UPI Pin.

Cons

Authorize.Net

  • The lack of data portability is a big issue for me.
  • Authorize.net uses the same $49.00 gateway setup fee to scam merchants out of money, which is no better than any of the other gateways out there.
  • Their customer service is not up to the mark. You can get stuck if you need any help from their end.

Google Pay

  • It would be helpful if Google Pay could sync with things like Apple Pay so that saved payment methods can be automatically imported
  • There are certain times when Google Pay grants offers for cash back at merchants but the transfer time on the cash back is something like 30 days, which is a long time to wait
  • Google Pay could also integrate with other credit card and bank apps to add stored payment methods from there

Authorize.net has been a useful system for our Chamber. We appreciate the ease of use and access to our Main Frame. Connecting Authorize.net to our system for membership, event and other payment ease has been excellent and we have experienced no problems whatsoever.

I have had no direct experience with the Customer Support team for google pay. I never faced any issues or problems. I heard from other friends and colleagues that the customer service is great. This method of payment is now more and more being used as it is more secure and also at the same time fast and easy.

Alternatives Considered

Authorize.Net

Authorize.net is a reliable and affordable payment processing service that offers more robust security than other services, such as Stripe or PayPal with their monthly fees at $25 dollars month lot of people may be turned off by these high prices but you get what you pay for - protection against fraud in risky transactions so I would recommend using Authorize.net if this matters to your business!

Google Pay

GooglePay appears similar but the seller charges no commission. On the downside, there is also no payment protection. So if a transaction goes wrong and it is paid directly from a bank account or via a debit card then you have no buyer protection. This is a significant risk when using GooglePay. PayPal has its own buyer protection.

Return on Investment

Authorize.Net

  • Lets us charge cards so we can get paid on time, every time.
  • It was very difficult to setup the DocuSign integration the first time, but after we got it setup, it's made the onboarding process very easy. That probably saves about 30 minutes every time we get a new client.

  • Improves risk mitigation and ensures safety and account health of our vendors
  • Increased efficiency and pushes payments through at a faster rate
  • Provides work-life balance when fiscal deadlines slowly approach
