Connect Go Method to your online payment platform.

Authorize.net is a trusted payment processing partner that integrates with Go Method to process donations and refunds that occur in Go Method. You can use your account to accept credit cards and electronic checks.

The payment process has three steps:

  1. Authorization: When customers use their cards to make a purchase, the process of checking that the customer has sufficient funds and allowing the purchase is called authorization.

  2. Capture: Next, the customer's bank verifies that the funds are available and places a hold on those funds.

  3. Settlement: The process of sending funds from the customer's account to the merchant bank is called settlement. A payment network handles the settlement.
