    Authorize Payment, Purchase Order or Other?

    Asked by QuikConcepts on March 08, 2013 at 09:42 AM

    We like the PayPal Pro form but have decided we want to caculate shipping and run payments through on our end. If we use the Authorize Payment Form does it send an email to just us containing their credit card info and is it secure? Our other option looks like using the Purchase Order Form but then we have to ask for credit card info. What is your recommendation?

    Hi there,

    It is not recommended that you collect Credit Card information withour forms unless using the secure payment fields that are offered.  Authorize.net can collect the billing information in a secure manner so that you can bill them later on.

    You would have to add "Customer information management" on your Authorize.net account - this could be found on you sign in.  This allows you to store the billing information of your clients and process the payments at a later date.

    I would advise caution with the notifications on that form since it is not safe to have Credit Card information e-mailed.

    I hope that helps!
