The Internet represents
a tremendous opportunity for your business -- whether you're a budding
entrepreneur looking to market and sell your great new idea or a large
corporation searching for new ways to increase sales. But selling goods
and services on the Internet presents its own set of challenges -- like
how to set up and maintain a secure, reliable, cost-effective system for
authorizing payment and managing transactions. If you don't know what you're
doing -- and even if you do -- that can be difficult, complicated, and
Authorize.Net removes the
barriers that might prevent you from doing business on the Net. We take
care of the complex issues for you with our advanced transaction processing
system, so all you need to process and manage transactions over the Internet
is the Authorize.Net payment system, a credit card merchant account, and
a computer with an Internet connection and a Web browser. You don't have
to buy or maintain expensive hardware or software. You don't have to worry
about security, downtime, or making sure electronic transactions are processed
and settled correctly.
To get started with
Authorize.Net, apply for a credit card processing account. After your account
has been approved -- this typically takes around five days -- your reseller
will assign you a user ID and password and provide training on the system.
Then, your Web developer simply creates a link from your Web site to the
Authorize.Net system using the basic HTML
code we provide.
