Authorize.net API Developers for Secure and Flexible E-Commerce
An experienced Authorize.net API programmer will be familiar with all the features the API provides AND the administrative interface of the Authorize.net gateway.
With Authorize.net, very secure ecommerce applications are possible, because you are able to process credit card transactions without having to store any credit card data. In order to do this, your developer should utilize the Customer Profile and Payment Profile features of the Authorize.net API.
These features allow you to establish customer and payment profile IDs for your customers on your account at Authorize.net. Then, you have only to store the IDs in your local database, and reference them with Authorize.net when you wish to charge that customer.
This feature makes your application more secure, and at the same time enables you to provide convenient features for your customers to securely recall previous payment methods for new purchases.
