In 2003 I decided it was time for a career change. After running my own business for a time, I found the process of getting a payment gateway, merchant account and online shopping cart system daunting. Anyone who knows me can attest that I am a man who needs to have “all of my ducks in a row”. I need to be informed about any and all of the details. If there is any information lost in translation I make it my mission to figure it out
Whether you’re selling homemade bead necklaces, selling a million dollars in tennis shoes, or are starting a business labeled high risk like electronic cigarettes, or an MLM if you have the shopping cart software Magento, or are thinking about it I can take the confusion out of setting up a gateway, choosing a merchant account provider and integrating Authorize.net.
I have taken the time and done the research so you don’t have to. Should you choose us to provide your payment gateway we will personally walk you through each and every step of the set up process. We will even hop on a call and hold your hand while you generate the API log in and Transaction key that Magento needs to process through Authorize.net. Magento Community Edition is an open source online shopping cart available for free, Magento Enterprise is a feature suite of features available from Magento at a fee. Regardless of which you choose in order for you (the merchant) to accept credit card payments online, you generally need a merchant account along with a payment gateway such as Authorize.net or NMI. Authorize.net is a payment gateway that combines with Magento and transmits the transaction to the merchant account or processor quickly, efficiently and inexpensively. Authorize.Net administers the routing of transactions like that of a credit card swipe machine you would find in a store. The major difference is that this payment gateway uses the Internet as opposed to a phone line. There are many features and options when you combine Magento and Authorize.net. To your benefit, it means that there a wide variety of customization options available to you.
Depending on your needs we can often offer Authorize.net with $0 in set up fees and no early termination fees. Even if you already have a shopping cart and payment gateway system running on your website and simply want to speak to an industry insider, I am always happy to answer any questions you may have regardless of who you use for your gateway or process through.
