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.

Payoneer is well suited for freelancers whether or not they work on marketplaces. as it makes it easier to receive payments from clients abroad. More over it also takes a lot of hassle out of getting paid from international clients as well as sending cross border payments. It has some what limited implementation in e commerce type business especially where you need to automate the payment process
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review It is very well accepted world wide and also accepts more than 150 currencies. A decent and nominal exchange rates of currency as compared to similar platforms like PayPal. I can keep track of all the transactions, payments, balance, etc using Payoneer. It is because of Payoneer we can grow our business globally. Read full review Cons 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. Read full review The process of getting payment is a little bit complex in Payoneer as compared to PayPal. Receiving of payments takes a very long time and it's not instant. The customer service of Payoneer is not up to the mark and it takes a very long time to resolve simple issues.

The support is really awful. They send you generic answers, and actually don't really understand what is going on. For example, when our re-verification was stuck, support agents told me that the account is active and you can send a payment. I did that, my card was charged, but the payment was declined, because the account was not active

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!

Before Payoneer, I used Paxum, a Canadian product, that was or is similar but more expensive. Also used Payza(later Ecopayz), and European alternative, they have their ups and downs, they aren't even listed in the Search above, basically they are both payment gateways that allow using several payment methods, and any payment gateway, the problem is they don't have any bank accounts associated with them, therefore they are more limited in that regard. Both use a card as the main withdrawal method, and both support international currencies, but there as I mentioned there isn't any bank account associated with them, nor there is a way to connect them to Stripe.
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. Read full review I can receive the money from anywhere around the world, and in any currency. It converts the money directly into my local currency, hence becomes easy for us to track and withdraw money from our bank accounts. Sometimes customer support lacks the ability to satisfy the customer requirements. Required to make two different accounts for receiving and sending money. Read full review ScreenShots
