Authorize.Net

It's great if you need to record billing information for future payments. It's a lot easier than having to send invoices and waiting for the clients to pay every time. Of course, if you're prepaying or something like that, I wouldn't think authorize.net is necessary. Once you get to $10,000/month in credit card transactions, that's when you'd want to look into things like authorize.net from what I understand.

We're a marketing agency and it's worked perfectly for our recurring payment retainers (same amount each month).
It would also work well for a company with a set product line up or a company that wants a more traditional "store" setup.

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.

  • It'd be nice if they were to integrate with online form tools such as formstack.com, wufoo.com, jotform.com etc.
  • It'd be nice if there was a payment option which didn't include a monthly fee but had a higher transaction fee. This is good for people who get donations or payments infrequently. For that group, PayPal is the best option because Paypal has no monthly fee but a high transaction fee.

Alternatives Considered

Authorize.Net

Authorize.net does not stack up well against Stripe. Stripe is much simpler and easy to maintain. Stripe's recurring payment platform allows the manager to easily associate subscriptions with customers. Where Authorize.net takes about 4 hours to learn, Stripe takes about 1 hour. Stripe also integrates well with other platforms, such as Salesforce, which gives it a leg up over the competition.

PaySimple feels a bit more comprehensive of a solution. The timing of invoice processing feels quicker and the bank level encryption feels more secure.

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.

  • The ROI is neutral - it is just a tool we use to get payments. We do not use many other features that it offers that could create a positive ROI, we just don't have a need for them at the moment.
