Authorization.net and the Magento 2 Module

When building your ecommerce site, an important aspect which contributes to your business’s success is how easily a customer can make their purchase. This includes many steps, and all should be laid out in a simple efficient way. However, one of the most important is the process in which a customer enters their payment information into your site. 

Many people do not have the time or the patience to sign up for a third party payment service in order to complete their transaction. In addition to this factor, customers also have concerns about whether or not the information they enter is secure. Potential consumers enter in their most personal information including credit card info, home address, etc. The consequences of this information being released to the wrong people could cause very serious problems. 

Introducing Authorize.net [CIM]

So how do you set up a payment system within your site which is both convenient for the customer and provides a sense of security to them? Luckily, Authorize.net has provided this solution.
