One of the most popular payment gateways in the industry of payment processing is Authorize.net. This payment gateway manages about $149 billion in payment transactions every year. In fact, Authorize.net is so highly regarded that they won a 2020 TSG Payment Gateway Award for the Highest Authorization Rate. This award is a ‘real transaction metrics’ award that measures consistent processing performance and it signifies that Authorize.net had the highest rate of successful processing authorizations for 2020. So, who is Authorize.net?
Authorize.net is a payment gateway provider that has been around since 1996. It was conceived and developed in Utah by Jeff Knowles. In 2010, the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Visa when Visa acquired CyberSource. Since then, Visa has managed the two companies as separate entities. The beauty of Authorize.net is the flexibility that they offer partners and clients by providing an industry standard API for integrating with gateway payment processors, especially Payline Data.
Authorize.net API Integration Features
Authorize.net’s primary product is their payment gateway. Their API (Application Programmer’s Interface) has become the standard in payment gateway interfaces due to outstanding application quality and seamless integration capabilities. An API is basically the tool through which a payment processor communicates with the gateway. When ecommerce Developer’s build shopping cart software for online merchant platforms, most choose payment gateway code compatible with Authorize.net’s API since it’s the most widely used for integration.
Also, many other merchant account providers actually include an ‘Authorize.net Emulator Mode’ so that their gateway interface is compatible due to the fact that Authorize.net is the most common and recognizable gateway product in the industry.
Other Features and Benefits
One of the reasons that Authorize.net is so popular is their exceptional fraud prevention system, the Advanced Fraud Detection Suite™ (AFDS). With AFDS, a client has the ability to customize fraud detection filters and tools. These tools provide a more thorough screening of each transaction by validating credit card details prior to processing. Additionally you will have the ability to block IP addresses from certain fraud prevalent regions and countries.
AFDS also provides suspicious transaction reports to keep you aware of any transactions that require further review. Additionally, you can use the tool to implement ‘Velocity Filters’ which limit the volume of transactions processed per hour. By doing so, you can reduce the chance of incurring high volume fraud. Hackers will typically try to quickly push through a large number of payments using stolen credit card data.
Additionally, users of the Authorize.net benefit from the gateway’s Customer Information Manager (CIM). CIM allows you to create unique client profiles to manage and safeguard various payment methods per customer. This includes their shipping and billing information. Finally, Authorize.net customizes your invoices sent via email, as well as recurring billing options.
If you are a merchant shopping for the best pricing for payment processing services including payment gateways, consider using Authorize.Net’s gateway via a reputable Payment Processor like Payline. We have access to lower monthly gateway fees and lower per-transaction charges while still fully integrating with Authorize.net.
With Payline, you receive an Interchange Plus pricing model which is fiercely competitive compared with other payment processing methods. When you combine Payline’s payment processing services with the benefits of Authorize.net’s gateway, you get the best of both worlds.
Of course, Authorize.net does offer stand-alone pricing for gateway processing as well as a monthly package that includes a merchant account for customers. The company doesn’t currently charge a setup fee. One of the biggest drawbacks to going directly with Authorize.net is their $25 monthly gateway service fee regardless of whether you choose their ‘All-in-One Account’ or their ‘Payment Gateway Only’ account.
The All-in-One account is 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction. This includes a merchant account that Authorize.net provides. The ‘Payment Gateway’ only account is 10 cents per transaction, and 10 cents per batch transaction.
Can You Switch Payment Processors?
If you find yourself interested in the tools and benefits offered by Authorize.net, first check with your current payment processor to see if they offer an integration. If it’s not available with your current payment processor, switching payment processors is always an option. Once you choose to apply with Payline Data, we will have a team of professionals that will make the process simple and stress-free.
