    Gary, could you elaborate on the fees? I will need a CC processing service shortly and I need to get educated...

    PS. My needs are not hosting related.

    Hi Tri

    To elaborate further, bascially for every transaction that you process, the merchant will take out 2.39% of that, and an additonal .30 cents

    So for example, you run a 9.95 transaction, thats .24 cents (2.39%) and .30 so the total fees the merchant will charge you is .54 cents, your return (or deposit) will be will be $9.41

    For the recurring fees, these are fees that will be taken out every month, they are broken down into two basic fees, a $10.00 gateway fee and $15.00 statement fee

    For the Minimum Fee, if you run $25.00 or more in transactions per month, this will be waived. If you run any transactions that month, but its under 25.00, then the total amount will be prorated, so if you ran a $10.00 charge that month, then they would only withdraw an additonal $15.00

    Chargeback fee is the total fee which will be withdrawn if your account gets a chargeback (customer disputing a charge)

    I hope I cleared everything up for you

    You stated "Fast and Guaranteed" , but would that include merchants with no credit or bad credit? Offer sounds good, but just would like to know what's the approval rating for merchants who have less than favorable credit history? If they approve people with no or bad credit, then that's great, as I know some merchant providers are very particular about credit scores and the type of business you are running in terms of it's "high risk".

    Gary, thanks, great explanation!

    Another question: what software, if any, does this account come with for integrating making charges from a web site?

    -Tri

    Can your merchant account be integrated into my website seamlessly. I mean other merchant company's like 2checkout.com, you have to use their secure server.. ie https://secure.whatever.2checkout.com.

    Authorize.net is a gateway which acts as the "middle man" between your processor and you. Its a online version of a terminal that you see in the stores when you go to buy stuff, they swipe your card.

    Authorize.net is just the "virtual" version of swiping a card. After your account is setup, all that would be required of you so to go http://secure.authorize.net, login and process your cards.

    If you decided to get WHNBilling as well, after its setup, it automatically will login to authorize.net's gateway and run the transactions automatically

    Hope that answerd your question

    Usually with any merchant, you need at least Fair credit to be considered. Processors like Nova (we dont use) are really strict as you stated and usually dont accept any customers below Good credit, but at the same time, Nova usually has alot lower rates then other merchants

    those of us who are just starting out will have *no* credit, either good or bad. what are our chances with authorize.net in that case?

    cheers,

    Hi Paul

    I just confirmed with our merchant and they said

    (*) Bad to fair is not necessarily bad if there's been no bankruptcy within the past year.
    (*) It the credit is totally horrible, they may require a co-signer. Fair credit ought to be fine.

    And I was able to work this special deal out today

    (*) There's automatic account approval on all accounts doing 10K/mth or less with an average ticket of $300 or less, pretty much regardless of credit.

    &

    (*) Instead of 2.39%, I got her worked down to 2.29%

    That should be no problem
    Please drop me a mail.

    Now, that's a pretty good deal and rate. I'll refer a few people who've been asking us about getting started with their own merchant account over to you guys, and I may sign up as well pretty soon.

    I just want to make sure I understand correctly: if I am looking for credit card processing for a non-hosting application (and therefore do not need WHNBilling), would I pretty much have to manually enter my transcactions at the authorize.net website?

    Yes, you go into Authorize.net's interface and just enter the CC and Customers info and it will give you an automatic response if its approved or not

    To others looking for a International Merchant, I will be contacting you by Monday with those rates

    We have had such a large demand on this (WOW!) that we had to contact our merchant and have them make us up an application that links directly into their database

    The above url now reflects that. I also got your manual app (John) and sent u an email a few hours ago with the new URL

    Sounds like kimaster and I are looking for the same thing. Is there any way to get it as part of or in addition to your offer?

    Thanks!

    Yea, Im willing to signup ASAP.. Just need those questions answered to figure out what the hell im getting myself into.

    CORRECT. You dont need to use anything of ours (at all). You get a normal merchant account just like any other company. Authorize.net supplies you with your own secured URL and tools required to setup a order form from your site.

    To see a demo of Authorize.net, go to http://yourfavorite.com/products/demo/login.htm

    and enter your name and (any) email address, you will then be redirected to the demo of authorize.net

    To be clear, Authorize.net provides you with *everything* you need to accept credit cards, with the approval of your merchant account


    Example

    Customer comes to your site ------> goes to order form -----> order is processed with authorize.net ------> order is sent to your merchant company ------> You get the money in 72 hours

    AlaskanWolf,

    I got this message when I tried going to the demo URL: "Thank you for contacting AWeber Systems, Inc.! We are performing some brief maintenance. Please try back shortly."

    In any case, it sounds like I will need to redirect to Authorize.net web site in order to process credit cards (as opposed to having it seamlessly integrate on the back-end). Is that correct?

    -Tri

  28. #28
    What i did was just click that link below it and it forwarded me to the demo area (i found it on google...)

  29. #29
    You dont need to redirect to Authorize.net because it has its own API, so you can make your *own* signup form and keep it on your own server etc...

    Never mind. The Authorize.net Developer Guide answers all questions. It sounds like there is, in fact, a way to integrate seamlessly and directly.

    -Tri

  31. #31
    Yup, its pretty easy to integrate it into your site with their API tools and instructions

  32. #32
    Ok one questioned has been answered.. How Much is this gonna cost me now.. I just need to accept credit cards via internet.

    Gary,

    If you don't process any orders during the month then you pay $50/mo (Minimum Fee + Recurring Fee) - correct?

    Great offer! I'll probably end up getting one here really soon.


    I'll throw something in here to hopefully answer a few questions and to get confirmation from Gary.

    There are 2 ways (for the most part) to accept credit cards with your authorize.net account.

    1) Use the secure.authorize.net address thats given to you to either manually process transactions or to have your customer's go to

    or

    2) Use the WebLink feature that allows programmings (and third-party software) to actually connect and transmit the credit card information from your server to authorize.net to have real-time processing on your site. This is probably what Tri saw when he was looking at the developer guide.


    Am I correct with the information above?

    There are actually two more ways that require more programming effort but are more direct. Which is really what I was looking for.

    Gary,

    A friend of ours signed up, but did not recieve any confirmation, what email should we email? and how long does it usually take to be signed up?

  40. #40
    The form they fill out, goes directly to the merchant bank, not us. So it doesn't sit in our box (at all). Anytime you deal with merchant accounts, you must be ready to wait at least 3-7 days for a response and final confirmation.

    If you email me, i will look it up, because usually the bank will leave notes on the application whereas if they are working on it, what stage it is at etc...
