MemberGate Infinity now integrate's with the Authorize.net CIM token payment option.
Membership subscriptions and shopping cart payments can be processed through your MemberGate site using Authorize.net CIM's token system as a payment gateway. This allows sites to use the highest level of data security when it comes to credit card information that is no longer stored in your site's database.
The use of a token system reduces the risk involved as credit card information is not stored on your site. It also increases the ability to consistently pass the PCI testing.
Please visit authorize.net for more information about their token payment gateway system and to sign up for an account. Be sure to enable the token gateway as part of your plan.
Existing Authorize.net Users
Please visit authorize.net for more information about their token payment gateway system.
If you are already using Authorize.net as a payment gateway, it will be necessary to update your account so you use their Payment Token System. You can find it by logging into your Authorize.net control panel then look under "Merchant Profile".
1. Once CIM is enabled, from your MemberGate control panel under 'Master Settings' choose 'Payment Gateway'
2. From the 'Payment Gateway' field choose 'Authorize.net CIM' from the drop down menu
As members in recurring plans automatically renew their subscription, their information will be updated from being stored on your site to be stored in the payment gateway's token system.
Other Payment Gateways with Token Systems
Please note that if your business is in the United States, Authorize.net is not the only option for a Payment Gateway company. It is also possible to integrate with Stripe
Stripe also uses a token system and their PCIDSS checks are considerably more user friendly.
Before switching to a token gateway, we advise to thoroughly check between your choices as once the token system is in place, user data is stored at that gateway. Should you choose at a later date to switch to another token gateway, all of your subscribers would have to enter in their credit card details to manually renew their accounts to save the data in the new gateway's system.
