Payment System for Retailers

Jun 1, 2008

Authorize.Net has launched a new online payment service designed for specialty merchants that typically sell one item per order. Called Simple Checkout, the application allows online merchants to create easy to implement "Buy Now" buttons.

To generate the button, a merchant enters information such as price, description and shipping cost into the Authorize.Net merchant interface. The Simple Checkout application then automatically generates an HTML code, which the merchant copies into its website.

By clicking a Simple Checkout button, consumers download Authorize.Net's hosted payment form, where they enter their required information. Because payment card data is collected using Authorize.Net's secure servers, Simple Checkout simplifies the retailer's compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which provides a framework for securing credit card account data.

"Simple Checkout provides a great solution for merchants that don't fit the regular shopping cart model of doing business," said Roy Banks, president of Authorize.Net. Online retailers can customize various elements for each Simple Checkout item. That can include an item ID and description, shipping method, maximum items per order and verified merchant seal. Merchants also can select from pre designed "Buy Now" buttons or create ones that match the look and feel of their own website.

Authorize.Net is a business unit of CyberSource Corp. For more information, contact:
