Enables merchants to authorize, settle and manage credit card or electronic check transactions.


Authorize.Net provides Internet Protocol (IP) payment gateway services that enable merchants to authorize, settle and manage credit card or electronic check transactions. The Authorize.Net Payment Gateway is a secure Internet bridge between merchant businesses and the credit card payment processing network. It provides merchants with fast, reliable and secure passage for transaction data via a 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Internet Protocol (IP) connection, and manages the complex routing of payment information to the appropriate credit card processors. For more information, see the Authorize.Net website. The AuthorizeNet_Transaction object allows you to submit credit card transactions to Authorize.Net. It does not support e-checks.
