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.

Authorize.net is great for any small or large business needing to process payments. Whether ecommerce, donations, merchants, etc. the software will get the job done. The fees are minimal and it is easy to use so it will save time and money. You can sync authorize.net with your CRM, webmaster, API, etc.

Authorize.Net is suited for almost all types of business and organizations. One can use Authorize.Net [whether] they have a website or not. You can integrate digital payments to your applications, it has fully managed APIs and SDKs.

If you are a developer, then Authorize.Net also has developer forums where you can discuss your issues and get [them] resolved.

It is great for when you need to receive payments but you don't have the ability for the cardholder to be physically present. It is also great for eCommerce sites. Authorize.Net is one of the more widely known payment gateways so I've found that most popular eCommerce platforms already have an existing integration which is really nice.

This is a pretty basic payment processor—it works acceptably for our application for our catering software, but I might not choose it for more robust applications. At the height of catering, we were processing a few hundred payments daily.

It has worked fine for us for the simple running of credit card payments that are taken over the phone. It would most likely not be convenient as a POS as it takes entirely too long to type in all of the customer's billing information, firstborn, blood type, next-door neighbor's mother's maiden name...okay, the last three aren't actually needed, but it sure feels like that's how much information it asks for every time. :)

Authorize.Net is best for mid to large size companies that need to process large transactions and are worried about fraud or potential chargebacks. Small businesses are probably better off going with a different option since there are many less expensive options out there that offer very similar features for credit card processing.

I have not utilized any other payment processing systems to have anything in which to compare authorize.net to. I will say that I have been very impressed with how easy this system is to use. It is incredibly user friendly and intuitive. I have had no formal training but have been able to navigate the system as an administrator with no issues whatsoever.

I would not recommend it - based on my experience there are much better providers. Authorize.Net is one of the oldest payment gateways and it is starting to show, the interface is old and there were constant service interruptions. It was also a hassle to fight chargebacks on this system.

If there is a third-party plugin or ready solution available, then typically integrating Authorize.net is very easy with that. In a more unique situation, a programmer might be needed. If collecting and/or saving payment, customer, and billing information, Authorize.net will likely fit well - possibly with some add-ons (such as CIM). Storing additional information may or may not be supported.

While other gateways (like Braintree) are a little fresher and more innovative than Authorize.Net, no one has the track record that AuthNet has. Plus you have to consider that if you want to use the Braintree gateway (or many others) without using their payment processing, you are stuck paying $49 per month plus $0.10 per transaction just for the gateway, which for many is just not cost effective. Authorize.Net, on the other hand, is often offered as a substantial discount from resellers, making it very attractive. Other unique features like their mobile app add to the appeal.

So far, I'm happy with Authorized.net. Our eCommerce site is running well and there is nothing to complain about it. It is suited perfectly well for us (eCommerce team) to implement a payment gateway integration. It also worked for our business team who don't need to worry about fraudulent [transactions] and implementing a PCI compliant infrastructure.

It is great when you have an issue and need it resolved. The customer support team is excellent and very responsive. It is not so well suited for detecting fraud. The fraud suite is broad and it seems as its an all or nothing approach to limiting fraudulent transactions.

Authorize.net is very well suited for any scenario that requires linking merchant accounts to a website that is on PCI compliant servers. It is easy to add to any custom integration or plugin, regardless of coding language. It is also very well suited for creating subscription based payments. Finally, it offers a more robust set of functions for verification of credit cards/bank accounts, particularly when needing to verify the legitimacy of a card/account while delaying the capture of the funds.

Authorize.net is well suited for a small businesses that plans to collect a lot of payments. It accepts all the major credit cards and works flawlessly in processing the payment quickly and accurately. Its low fees work well for a large volume of payments. Due to it's difficult importing and exporting settings, Authorize.net is less appropriate for growing businesses that are looking to use analytics to leverage it's success. It's also less appropriate if you plan to offer subscriptions or payment plans.
