Overall Satisfaction with Authorize.Net

I have a home inspection business and customers pay by credit card 90% of the time. Once an inspection is scheduled, an email is generated asking the customer to follow a link in order to sign an inspection agreement and make payment by credit or debit card. In my business, not taking a credit card is not an option, merely a matter of choosing which payment processing platform we choose to do business with.

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 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.
