Flexible Options to Start Accepting Payments Right Away
Are you struggling to serve your customers in this new environment? Looking for ways to improve cash flow and quickly get set up to accept payments? We can help you accept card payments online—with or without an eCommerce website.
Virtual Terminal: Accept card payments without an eCommerce site or card reader
One of the fastest ways to start accepting card payments is through the Virtual Terminal. No eCommerce website is required, and the service is included at no additional cost to your account.
Accessible through the Merchant Interface, Virtual Terminal is a web-based application that allows you to enter payment information manually for phone orders—without requiring a card reader or other expensive hardware. The transaction takes place through Authorize.Net’s gateway, a secure online payment processor.
Mobile credit card readers (mPOS)
With curbside pickups becoming more popular, Mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) is an excellent payment acceptance service that you can use to accept payments while maintaining physical distance.
Authorize.Net’s mPOS service enables you to accept and manage card payments securely from an Android or Apple device. You can also accept tips and send email receipts. Think of mPOS as a portable, virtual cash register that let's you accept payments from anywhere.
mPOS also provides the option to manually key in payment information. This allows you to process transactions with no physical contact—perfect for curbside pickups.
Customer Information Manager (CIM)
Store customer information on hosted servers and safely replace sensitive payment data with unique tokens using Customer Information Manager. You can save billing, payment and shipping information for future orders. And you can manage customer profiles directly from your merchant interface.
Your cash flow in these uncertain times is vital, and our digital Invoicing tool can help you get paid faster. Authorize.Net accounts include, at no additional charge, our simple, Digital Invoicing option. With this tool, you can create and send email invoices to customers with an email address, allowing them to easily pay from their enabled computer or mobile device. The Digital Invoicing feature works great for quickly accepting payments from customers, with the average invoice paid within 48 hours1.
Digital Invoicing also provides a convenient way to accept payments from customers who traditionally pay face-to-face. With social distancing in effect, it’s worth considering how Digital Invoicing can help your customers.
ECHECK.NET®, electronic checks acceptance, is another great way to help you get paid faster. An echeck* is a form of payment where the payment (money) is electronically moved from the customer’s checking account to your business’ checking account. Check out our ECHECK.NET®, solution to learn more.
*Using eCheck incurs a separate charge.

With Advanced Fraud Detection Suite, you can identify, manage, and prevent suspicious and potentially costly fraudulent transactions. With AFDS, businesses can evaluate transactions for fraud with 12 different filters, restrict activity from specific IP addresses, reduce chargebacks, and reduce phishing & card testing attacks.
