With over 440,000 merchants, Authorize.Net has one HUGE small business community, which is just one of the reasons so many third-party solutions integrate to our payment gateway. This series of blog posts highlights our partners and their unique offerings that meet all of your business needs.
Today’s Topic? Form Solutions.
We know that many merchants do not need a full shopping cart or online store. Additionally they may not be ready for a fully integrated custom solution. If you are one of these merchants, a form solution to accept payments might be the perfect fit.
Benefits of form solutions include:
• The ability to accept payments on your website easily and securely
• A payment experience that blends seamlessly with your website’s design
• The flexibility to make minor changes without hiring a developer or Web agency
“Collecting money should be simple,” says Authorize.Net Marketing Manager Richard Holder. “Form solutions allow businesses to get rid of paper forms and start easily collecting payments with an online form.”
Authorize.Net currently includes three form solutions in our Certified Solutions Directory: Formstack, JotForm and Wufoo. Read on to learn more about each solution and how to contact them.
