The easiest way to apply for an Authorize.net account is to contact Gotmerchant, one of the friendliest reseller for small business. You can also apply from Authorize.net directly or contact other resellers. Here is the directory of the Authorize.net resellers.
When applying for the gateway account, make sure to specify that you need a "Card Present Gateway" account for it to work with Imonggo. "Card Present" means that you have physical access to the credit card during sales.
Inform the reseller that Imonggo is a certified Authorize.net POS solutions provider. You may ask them to check out the following URL - http://www.authorize.net/solutions/merchantsolutions/merchantservices/certifiedsolutiondirectory/?type=csstpos where Imonggo is listed.
Once your Authorize.net gateway account is approved, you will be able to login to Authorize.net and obtain the API Key and Transaction Key needed for the next step.
- Go to Control Center (located at the Office) and click Setup Credit Card Processing
- Check "Enable credit card processing through authorize.net"
- Enter your Authorize.net API key and Transaction key
- Check "Enable swiping with magnetic card reader" if you have a magnetic card reader connected
- Click Save
Imonggo is now ready to process customer's credit card payments at the Store.
A magnetic card reader can be used so that you can swipe customer's credit card without having to manually type the complete credit card information.
Most magnetic card readers behave like keyboards and will recognize the encoded information once you scan the card. They don't normally require additional software to be installed. Imonggo will only support magnetic card readers that behave like keyboards (or operate in keyboard emulation mode).
