A credit card transaction is a request to authorize, capture, and settle, funds for a purchase. The payment gateway submits the request to the card issuing bank for authorization and upon approval, will automatically submit the transaction for settlement. The response from a card issuing bank to a merchant’s transaction authorization request indicates to the processor that payment information is valid and funds are available on the customer’s credit card. This process is called approval.
To become an Authorize.net merchant, Classy flags had to meet certain standards of merchandising. The gateway and processors of customer transactions, use certain authenticating processes to determine if the merchant is a valid business. These credit card processing sites verify the identity of the merchant and make sure that certain processes are in place. Authorize.Net employs a number of electronic practices and procedures to verify that merchants accessing the payment gateway are authorized to do so. We are proud to be Authorize.Net merchants.
