Authorize.Net is extremely reliable and very easy to setup the system. Mobile application is very good and free of cost. Capturing card and managing customer information is really handy, we can generated different types of reports on it and searching anything is a breeze. Security features are top notch and there is free of cost virtual terminal as well.

Authorize.Net is a perfect solution when you need to implement it in a small to medium eCommerce. It allows you to process payments on an international scale, and it's perfect when the sale process has no special requirements. Since it can be used for physical POS, you can have a single solution for your shop and your website.

This software is excellent with clean interface with multiple active functions and very simple to custom their capabilities. The processing of online payments and transactions, Authorize.Net is effective and the best asset tracking and management package. The invoicing tools and its scheduling functions offers the best and its analytical capability is also productive.

For this specific use - a business that has a retail location as well as an online e-commerce store - Authorize.net has been great from what I've seen. My client does most of the work facing Authorize.net and he has been thrilled with it. His payment processing company strongly recommended Authorize.net for when they developed an e-commerce platform.. as a web designer, I don't see a HUGE difference between other providers, but he seems very happy and says that everything works very smoothly between the retail store and the website.

We are a nonprofit organization and use Authorize.Net to complete donation transactions. Sometimes our donors call in to leave a donation via credit card or leave their credit card information written on a remittance envelope sent to them in the mail. The main feature we use is to process credit card transactions.

Our organization was looking to revamp one of our departments to increase its production but also elevate our staff quota. Authorize.Net gave us the shopping power to invest in equipment essential to our growth. Furth more, it gave us the opportunity to look at our spending budget keep it medium containable yet possibly room to expand if needed with our limited budget restrictions.

Well suited for payments, contractual obligation, end date termination, and needs more improvement on layout, which I have already mentioned. While reconciliation is excellent, transaction decline status is not transparent. This needs more realistic reasons to be conveyed to the users. Sometimes debt claims are unreasonable and make the process very troublesome.

Repeat charges need to be stored, and API widgets are excellent.

It provides easy and secure payment solutions. The payment process is very quick and performs in real-time. The navigation is also good. They should work on the website design part to look better. They should consider the pricing part (make affordable) for start-ups and small business owners. Customer support is their weak part.

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.

We do not have a credit card machine, everything is done inhouse, on the Internet. With Authorize.Net I do not have to be concerned with PCI compliance, as that falls to Authorize.Net. We manually run our credit cards and Authorize.Net allows us to do this quickly. If there's an expired date we are notified, if there the credit card declines, we are notified as soon as we run the card. With declined cards, because they are stored on the Authorized.Net we can contact the customer, update the account and set a future time for the transaction if necessary. I don't see a situation where is would not be appropriate to use.

Authnet is extremely good at providing API accessibility for authorizing and capturing transactions. We used their API to connect to our bespoke in house ordering system. This was a critical implementation for us, and was not reliably available from many other providers at that time. They have been consistently reliable and are mostly ahead of the game on implementing important features. On the opposite end of the spectrum, their webhooks for providing automated alerts are very unreliable. We were relying on them to capture information on automated recurring billing events, but they were so unreliable we had to retool the system and completely eliminate the ARB aspect. We resorted to leaning on internal scheduling jobs combined with tradition API calls to make transactions instead.

I don't see any needed improvements, as far as I know they're one of the most secured payment options. You can always question any doubted/suspicious activities, they have been able to always get back with more details on any transactions.

The great thing about Authorize.net is it's widely recognized and accepted as a gateway for payment processors and websites or applications. The cost is minimal as well. It's a good service when a customer wants to keep their existing website or application, but wants to change the native payment processor that is available. I don't suggest it as a stand alone processor as there are many more services that provide better virtual terminal processing capability for lower cost.

Authorize.net is the perfect choice for businesses looking to process credit card payments with a reliable and trusted processor that can also be used internationally, it has state-of its art hardware terminals so you don't have to worry about accepting your customers' funds or risk any fraud on their end either!

If you are a relatively small e-commerce establishment, then Authorize.net will more than meet your needs. However, if you are a multichannel retailer, Authorize.net's tools may be too basic for your needs.

Authorize.Net is a great solution for online and mobile payments. This has allowed us to process credit card payments from customers at two of our shopping centers. It works great on both the web and mobile devices that we use at our center and is quick and secure when taking customer credit card payments.

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. :)

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 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.

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.
