Internet Merchant Account Frequently Asked Questions
A general merchant account FAQ can be found here.

What is an Internet merchant account?
Internet accounts are primarily utilized by merchants that sell products or services from a website. However, Internet accounts are also used by merchants that have the need for portability. An Internet merchant account has a feature called a virtual terminal that can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. The merchant is able to use the virtual terminal to charge credit cards while on the go. This feature is especially useful when coupled with a laptop that has wireless Internet capabilities.

What is a real-time transaction?
A real-time transaction is a credit card transaction that is approved or declined almost instantaneously. An Internet merchant account uses a payment processing gateway to pass information from the merchant's website to the processor and back again in order to deliver an approval or decline in just a matter of seconds.

Can I accept phone orders with an Internet account?
Yes. The Authorize.net payment gateway has a very in-depth control panel that allows you to control a number of different aspects of your payment processing. The gateway also has a feature called a virtual terminal that allows you to manually enter a customer's credit card information using your computer keyboard. If a customer wishes to place their order over the phone instead of online you simply need to log into your virtual terminal and process their order.
