We are not using Stripe anymore. We started using it to take deposits, but we soon realized that we couldn't rebill the cards, so we switched back to Authorize.net. They are technically the processors, but Bank of America is the service provider.
Founder & CEO - College Truckers
Authorize.net is good for our industry.
Founder & President - Loto Labs
For payments we use Authorize.net - it is a great, solid and simple tool.
Founder & CEO - MySiteAuditor
They have a very good support team when we have issues. The tools on their site make it easy for us to see specific payment processes, and refund, modify, log or do whatever we need to. A big con is that it doesn’t work with PayPal.
Technical Founder - Campayn
We use Authorize.Net, and have no major complaints with it. We’ve all used it before, and we’re not in any hurry to switch to anything else. We don’t feel the need to switch because it works, and because it seems risky to move all of our credit card data to another platform.
Director of Service & Operations - Smart Lunches
For the API side, we use 3scale. It’s an API management platform that also manages billing. We have 3scale integrated with Authorize.Net to manage credit card processing. 3scale calculates invoices on a monthly basis, then sends that data to Authorize.Net, where the credit card transactions take place.
Co-founder - FullContact
Authorize.Net has been very robust for us. Do we end up getting money at end of the day/week/month? Yes. We don’t do batch processing or end of month processing - everything is in real-time as it happens. It’s very rare we have any issues with Authorize.Net.
CEO - OnSIP
Authorize.Net worked best with our system, and they’re pretty competitive on pricing. And I feel very secure with their technology being up to date. Stripe and PayPal would’ve been fine too, but for Magento, we liked Authorize.Net best.
Co-founder & CEO - Queen of Raw
We like Authorize.Net, and we recommend them a lot. If a company has limited or no integration between website and financials, Authorize.Net has good reporting. For ecommerce, we need reporting that line items out by item, shipping, and sales tax, and their reports have that detail. Their pricing is very competitive and they renegotiate rates as your volume of sales grows.
Founder & CEO - Creative Business Inc.
We use Authorize.Net because it was around when we first started out. Overall, we’re happy, but they’re missing some things that other companies do a better job of, like dealing with expired credit cards. If we were starting today, we’d definitely use something like Stripe that could tie our product plans into the system. We had to build all of our billing logic ourselves, and the tools available today don’t require that.
Co-founder - BuzzStream
We use Authorize.net, but they have work to do if they want to avoid getting disrupted. They’re the largest company in this space, and everyone wants to integrate with them, so that’s a big pro. But their reporting, UI, and API are all very last century. I’ve used Stripe before, and I would much prefer to use them. We may move over to Stripe sometime in the near future.
Founder - Qbox
We use Authorize.Net and it feels a little bit clunky. I would like us to be using Stripe or something like that. I’ve used Stripe on projects in the past.
Managing Director - Impact Hub NYC
We use Authorize.Net, but I’m not a fan of them. They’re not flexible, and they’re not good for basic functions, like refunding payments.
Co-founder - Simple Texting
We were using Chase Paymentech and Authorize.Net, but we recently switched to Heartland. We haven’t completed the switch yet, but we’re excited about it. Heartland has lower costs and, more importantly, they don’t hold onto your money as long as their competitors.
CEO & Founder - DK New Media
We use Authorize.Net because it integrates with our custom payment system, and it ties in with FreshBooks, as well.
Founder & CEO - Sociallybuzz
I picked Authorize.Net because everyone wants to integrate with them. They're the biggest player. This way, if sometime in the future a new product came out that I wanted to use, I'll be covered. Usually everyone's first move is to integrate with Authorize.Net.
Owner - Flow Simple
The interface for Authorize.Net is a bit complicated. Also, opening a merchant account requires multiple parties, while other services such as PayStand are a one-stop shop. One of our previous web developers recommended Authorize.Net, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Co-founder - Drop Global
We started using them from day one, and we've stuck with them ever since.

4%Stacklist Startups Are Using Authorize.Net
Companies of all sizes can use Authorize.Net, but it’s most frequently used by product retailers that need a point of sale (POS) software for in-person transactions.
Authorize.Net charges the industry-standard 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction, but also has a monthly gateway cost of $25 and a setup fee of $49. Keep in mind that this price does not include fees from your required separate merchant account.
