PayPal Pro VS Authorize.net

PayPal Pro

The Chamber recently made the decision to move from Authorize.net to PayPal Website Payments Pro for credit card processing in an effort to streamline processes and save on processing fees. PayPal Pro is a payment gateway and merchant account rolled into one; when a customer makes a purchase, the “payment gateway” handles the authorization – meaning it contacts the credit card issuer and makes sure the card is valid. If it’s good, the “payment gateway” will then charge the card, and deposit funds into the online store owner’s “merchant account”. View this great comparison chart for additional details:
