integrate with Authorize.net
We are pleased to announce that the Authorize.net integration with Xero is now live. This means Authorize.net can now be used with online invoicing. For information on getting set up, see this help article: http://help.xero.com/#PaymentServices.
For further comments, please follow this thread in the Xero community: https://community.xero.com/business/discussion/817245#answer3804801.
A reminder for those of you asking about integrating Authorize.net and shopping carts with Xero, the best approach is to connect the shopping cart to Xero using an eCommerce Add–on (http://www.xero.com/add-ons/ecommerce/).
You can also check out this guide on easily reconciling these sales with bulk remittances from payment processing services: http://blog.xero.com/developer/handling-payment-processor-receipts-in-xero/.
I'm a relatively new Xero user and am trying to find a better payment solution than PayPal. Especially because there is no way to link PayPal to my Xero invoices, and every deposit from PayPal comes as an un-marked lump sum that is labor intensive to reconcile.
I'm trying to find information on the Authorize.net integration, including information about how the actual deposits work in the back end - how do they appear in my dashboard?
I have been looking for screenshots and/or videos and have found nothing. Authorize.net told me to contact Xero, and Xero told me to contact Authorize.net. I can't warrant paying for a service just to test out its features. Can anyone help me out here?
I'm also curious about the Automated Recurring Billing vs. simple credit card charging features, and whether the one-time credit card payment integration works through Xero's "Pay Now" feature in invoices? What does the interface look like? Can my (non-ARB) customers have Authorize.net "remember me" for next time, or is ARB the only option for recurring payments? (Not all of our invoices are for the same amount, every time).
Thanks very much for any assistance you can provide.
Hello Xero Admin - Pease can you confirm that the integration with Authorize.net is going to continue with the Akamai update that Authorize.net are mandating on June 30th?
Here is their related blog posting on the issue: https://community.developer.authorize.net/t5/The-Authorize-Net-Developer-Blog/Important-Authorize-Net-Networking-Change/ba-p/51272?utm_campaign=Akamai%20CS%20Reminder&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua&elqTrackId=8c90d24001e048249d947fef5dd8e680&elq=d4be4b0b61f34931bf45aa144470414f&elqaid=495&elqat=1&elqCampaignId=259
Just to make sure, this does not include autopay with Authorize.net, does it?
Yay! I literally jumped for joy when I saw the update this morning. Thanks.

Try ZOHO they work great. I waited around long enough for Xero and ended up going to ZOHO Books. Never looked back. Beautiful interface seamless CRM and multiple addons supported by the company.

Yeah, pretty lame. Martin I just emailed you.
Need up to date info on this one (from 2010?). Have a client considering Xero who needs integration with Authorize.net. Working or not?
I have a working solution that seamlessly integrates Authorize.net and Xero.
Contact me at martin (at) truepot.com and I'll be happy to help anybody who'd like it.

Hey Ronan Quirke - Xero - This is absolutely ridiculous! People have been complaining for over three years now. It blows my mind that you guys can't figure this one out. It's only obvious that this is never going to happen with authorize.net!!
I know several people, including myself that have not signed up for this reason.
Thank you for the continued lies!

@Anonymous - not correct on a few fronts. The Authorize.net integration will happen, but please appreciate we have many customers requesting many different features and some take longer to deliver than we might wish.
It is not correct that Paypal money is invested in Xero - a Paypal founder who is no longer actively involved in Paypal has invested. We also have integrations with a number of other payment services (http://www.xero.com/us/add-ons/payment/), so Paypal is not the only solution allowed.
Hey guys, tell the truth, there is Paypal money invested in Xero, what means that integration with Authorize.net is gonna NEVER happen. All that information about Authorize.net is not stable or recomendation to use another processor is BLA, BLA, BLA. While Paypal owns Xero, it's gonna be the only solution allowed.
True Businesses don't use PayPal simply because the charge to much on their rate. When I save 1% on transaction on 1 Million Gross Sales in 1 Year. It makes a big difference.
Thats a savings of $10,000.00 a year.
Please make this happen. I'm losing money everyday because of this. Enough to start thinking about switching accounting systems once the year ends in December

PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN SOON!!!
They Have to get out of bed with Paypal first. Auth.net won't give them any kick backs. Sad but true...

I have been waiting for this integration for a while now. As a customer It would really make things a lot easier if my customers could pay for their invoices online instead of me having to call them up and ask for a credit card every time or wait for a check to come in the mail that normally ends up getting lost because USPS in the United States are incompetent people that cant put mail in the right mailbox.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE try to understand my frustration. I send out 20 bills every week with 100's of line items on each of them and trying to manage all of these customer is consuming way to much time. If my business gets any better I will definitely have to consider switch to another program as I might outgrow Xero very soon.
Please can you give us all an estimate on when this "Might" get done.
guys come one whats going on? Can we please get an update on when this is going to happen? What the current status? Do you have an ETA? how many team member do you have working on this?
This is a feature that is a must for most business owners.
Any news on this?
Did you guys know that Freshbooks supports Xero. I'm starting to think that I made the wrong decision when I switched accounting systems.
It's been 3 years? Can we get this up?
