Authorize.net announced new features recently added in an effort to meet current developments in eCommerce transaction technology for online businesses. By Pass Engineering, Inc. is not directly affiliated with Authorize.net, however several of our clients use this gateway; and therefore the following is provided as educational information.
New Feature: Sync for QuickBooks™
Sync for QuickBooks can potentially save you valuable time and money by automatically syncing your daily transactions to your QuickBooks account. Setup is simple and can be customized to your unique business requirements. Sync for QuickBooks provides a significant enhancement over previous options such as downloading and then uploading transactions into QuickBooks.
For more information see: QuickBooks page.
Apple Pay with Authorize.Net
Apple Pay allows you to use your Authorize.Net account to securely accept and process in-app payments from customers with the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. Apple Pay uses the Visa Token Service and similar tokenization solutions to replace sensitive payment information with a "token," which is passed in place of the actual card number, helping to make payments more secure.
Additional benefits include:
- A fast, secure in-app purchase experience — eliminates the need to enter credit card information during checkout.
- New growth opportunities — opens your business to the millions of Apple users.
- Unified reporting — all of your Authorize.Net transactions-online, mobile, in-app and more-in one place.
For more information and instructions on how to sign up, see Apple Pay FAQs.
