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.

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.

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.

Read full review Return on Investment 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.
