Integrating Authorize.Net

At Clarity Ventures, the majority of our eCommerce checkout systems use Authorize.Net as their payment processor.

There are many reasons Clarity uses the Authorize.Net gateway payment system, including its safe, secure reputation; its scalability and its easy integration.

Authorize.Net Vs Paypal

Authorize.Net allows for advanced payment options, like including ARB and enabling ACH and debit payments.

There is some debate about Paypal vs Authorize.Net and which one is a better payment processing system. While the answer can depend somewhat on the scope of your website, your traffic, and your budget, there are a few things to keep in mind. First of all, Paypal is a bit less expensive, costing nothing to set up and offering a lower monthly fee. Paypal can also be very convenient for many transactions. However, the Paypal company also has more control over your account and can put a freeze on it if they think they detect abnormal charging patterns. This can often lead to long-term problems while you sort the trouble out. With Authorize.Net, any money you receive is automatically yours; they do not put the money in holding.
