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.

Skrill

Skrill is my preferred way of doing money transactions abroad typically when I need a safe secured and efficient way of sending money overseas and the amount is low. Most other portals tend to charge a transfer fee for lower amounts but Skrill does not charge a transaction fee when I use the ACH Transfer even for lower amounts. For personal use, I have used the debit card to fuel transactions and it allows you the same facility as the debit card. If I need to complete the transaction within a day and want the money to be available in the receiving account overseas the same day, I prefer another portal that has the option of express service that Skrill does not offer.

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.

Skrill

  • Skrill allows paying with fairly low fees
  • Skrill supports quite a few locations and currencies
  • Skrill allows usage by people using different languages, which makes it easier to sync with non-English speakers
  • Skrill has an average but not terrible business account management system

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.

Skrill

  • Fees are quite high when sending or receiving money.
  • Exchange rates are also high.
  • Since this is only an online wallet, it lacks important features for a business such as being able to organize payments and reporting tools, as well as being able to search for payments in a more intuitive way.

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.

We ended up using Tipalti which seems to have solved our specific needs better, though it is more expensive.

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!

Skrill

I have not used a similar payment method in our company with the same features as Skrill. Our company position with Skrill has been great, and all-cash transaction demands have been met positively. We selected it as the main method of payment due to its flexibility and lower transaction fees, which has saved us a lot of costs. The system updates all payment history to ensure that there is a reference in case of any dispute.

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.

Skrill

  • I can quickly deposit my international multi-currency account without making an expensive wire transfer, with no border restriction as long as I have the mobile app with me.
  • Skrill is very convenient for each transfer amount up to EURO 2,500, and EURO 15,000/monthly.
  • Possibility of hiring freelancers for my company with immediate payments.
