Before you can use Authorize.Net with your WildApricot website, you must have an Authorize.Net merchant account.

Online payments through Authorize.Net

Visitors to your website can pay online for membership fees, event registrations, and donations if you have an account with an online payment processor, such as Authorize.Net. When a user chooses to pay online, they will be directed to a secure payment form to make the payment.

Note: For security reasons, credit card information used for making online payments is not stored in WildApricot. Instead, it is securely transmitted to your payment processor, where it is processed. The processor then returns the status of the payment transaction, which is recorded in your WildApricot transaction details.
