Authorize.net simplifies the payments process and gives you tools to help your business grow. Together with FreshBooks, they make it possible for your clients to complete credit-card and ACH payments within FreshBooks.
How it Works with FreshBooks
When viewing their invoices, your clients will have the option to enter credit-card details into FreshBooks to complete payments. FreshBooks then talks with Authorize.Net to process the credit-card payment, and to mark the invoice as 'paid' within FreshBooks.
You can also setup Authorize.Net to work with the auto-billing feature in FreshBooks, which lets you automatically deduct payments from your customers whenever a recurring invoice is generated. You'll be getting paid instantly, and know exactly when to expect these payments ahead of time.
How to Get Started

Once enabled, your clients will see a Pay Online button on their invoices, which will present them with the option to enter their credit card information and submit their payments.
