What is Authorize.Net
Authorize.net is a secure online payment-processing system that allows Internet-based businesses to authorize, process, and manage credit card transactions directly from their website. There are no worries about the complicated software, hardware, and expertise normally associated with enabling ecommerce. Click here for more information about Authorize.net.
How it works
The customer's information is encrypted and sent to an Authorize.net transaction server. The server sends the data through the authorization network to the appropriate card issuer's bank, using a secure, proprietary connection. When the process is complete (approx. 5 seconds), the customer receives an approval or decline response. Transactions are automatically settled each day and are typically funded within 2 to 3 business days.
Supported Processing Networks
Authorize.net is compatible with the following transaction processing networks:
- First Data Corporation (FDC)
- NOVA Information Systems
- Paymentech Processing Services

Support is handled directly by Authorize.net via email or toll-free phone support. You are free to either contact LexiConn or Authorize.net directly with any problems or support related issues.
