Accepting credit card payments with Authorize.net
Are you getting paid on time?
We can help by letting your customers pay you online with a credit card.
If your Cashboard account has been configured to accept payments via Authorize.net and your clients view an unpaid invoice, they will be given the opportunity to pay right from the page with a credit card.
After a payment is made, it will automatically be entered into your Cashboard account. You will also receive a notification email that a payment has been made. Your clients will never have to leave Cashboard for you to get paid.
