Simple Checkout

Create “Buy Now” and “Donate” buttons for your Web site simply by copying/pasting code provided by Authorize.Net. Simple Checkout is a perfect solution for donation sites and merchants that typically sell one catalog item per order.

How Simple Checkout Works

To generate the buttons, you simply enter applicable information such as an item description and price into the Authorize.Net Merchant Interface. HTML code is then generated automatically, which you can copy and paste into your Web site. When customers click your Simple Checkout button, they are taken to a secure, hosted payment form to enter their payment information, along with any other required information.

Because sensitive card data is collected using our secure servers, Simple Checkout can help simplify your compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Simple Checkout allows you to customize several settings for each item:

Item ID and Description

Each item can be assigned a unique item ID and description, which is displayed on your Web site’s order page, as well as the payment form and receipt page.

Suggested Donation Amounts

Nonprofit organizations can specify suggested donation amounts.

Shipping Methods

If shipping is required, you can configure up to 10 shipping methods (e.g. Ground, Overnight, Two Day, etc.), with ranges and costs (e.g. 1-5 items = $4.95, 6-10 items = $6.95, etc.) for each method.

Verified Merchant Seal

Display the Authorize.Net Verified Merchant Seal on your site to increase customer confidence and potentially increase sales.

Maximum Per Order

You can specify the maximum quantity of each item, per order, that a customer may purchase.
