    quickbooks vs authorize.net


    Hi,
    What's less expensive? Buying QUickbooks and processing orders myself or going thru authorize.net and having everyhting process thru the server? If I use quickbooks, then do I need an SSL certificate to encrypt the info sent in the email?

    Quickbooks and processing are two separate thing. You will likely use quickbooks if you want to integrate your invoicing. Both will require a gateway, whether through Intuit or Authorize.net or any other gateway. It is like getting an App, and you still need a gateway/processor.

    Example the price not counting the software at unitedbankservice.com :
    authorize.net is about $5 plus 5 cents per transaction
    Quickbooks processing $6 a month plus 5 cents per transaction

    The advantage would be Auth net can be automated on your website to accept payments, use virtual terminal or attach a swiper, you have a mobile terminal. No ssl encryption cert, unless you are using your own website. The Auth net virtual terminal or simple checkout payment are already SSL, a website Auth net provides.
