For payments we use - it is a great, solid and simple tool.

They have a very good support team when we have issues. The tools on their site make it easy for us to see specific payment processes, and refund, modify, log or do whatever we need to. A big con is that it doesn’t work with PayPal.

Authorize.Net - Best Credit Card Processor Tools for Startups

Authorize.Net is a credit card processor that enables you to accept payment through a number of different channels, including mail, telephone payments, retail and mobile. Unlike other credit card processors, Authorize.Net works only as a payment gateway, meaning you need to set up your own merchant account. (Competitors like Stripe and Braintree have an embedded merchant account in their platform.) Authorize.Net is more complicated than most other credit card processors, but its staggering number of payment platforms and integrations can make it well worth the extra hassle if you’re up to the challenge.

How startups use Authorize.Net?

Companies of all sizes can use Authorize.Net, but it’s most frequently used by product retailers that need a point of sale (POS) software for in-person transactions.

How much does Authorize.Net cost?

Authorize.Net charges the industry-standard 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction, but also has a monthly gateway cost of $25 and a setup fee of $49. Keep in mind that this price does not include fees from your required separate merchant account.
