What is Authorize.Net?

Authorize.Net is you as the Merchants Payment Gateway, the actual entity that processes your customers payment transactions and makes sure you get your money. It is of course the second most important piece of the transaction process. Along with payAWS, which processes the information prior to sending to Authorize.Net, and your Merchants Account provider, all three are necessary cogs in the machine.

Authorize.Net manages the routing of transactions just like a traditional credit card swipe machine you find in the physical retail world, however, Authorize.Net uses the Internet instead of a phone line. Connecting a website to the payment processing networks is exceptionally difficult and typically beyond the expertise and technical resources of most online merchants. Instead, merchants can easily connect to the Authorize.Net Payment Gateway through payAWS, an Authorize.Net reseller, which provides the complex infrastructure and security necessary to ensure fast, reliable and secure transmission of transaction data.

The Authorize.Net Payment Gateway is available 24/7 for processing transactions. We also offer a number of value-adding services to assist merchants in managing their businesses and protecting themselves from fraud. Additionally, the free, Authorize.Net Verified Merchant Seal can be added to a merchant's website to help build consumer confidence.
