Greater customer flexibility
Spreedly provides merchants the choice to work across multiple payment gateways, creating the flexibility to transact wherever you want.
Authorize.Net has decoupled its merchant account from its gateway, also allowing mutual customers to select the best value at each layer of the payment stack.
There are many reasons why you may want this type of flexibility:
- You may want an extra gateway for fail over while your primary is under duress, or while your gateway is underperforming.
- You may anticipate a peak in sales, and in preparation for this rush may want to have an additional gateway share the load.
- Or, you may simply want the option to choose another gateway without the hindrance of adding a merchant account when you move.
How does it work?
Most Spreedly customers that want to add Authorize.Net as an additional gateway do not have to establish an Authorize.Net merchant account. This means you do not have to interrupt the continuity of your business, the safety and security of your payments, or compromise on the flexibility of a secondary payment gateway. You can simply re-use your existing merchant account.
