Accept credit card payments in the US using Authorize.net

Is there a reason that you are offering only PayPal integration? Did they get any exclusivity?
I agree that it is a good option especially when you deal with many countries and different currencies.
However, for the US market, I am sure that many customers would like to use Authorize.net.

Another point is that I would prefer to charge the customer's credit card directly, instead of asking them to login and pay. If I can do it from withing Xero, it should reconcile the account automatically.

Hi All - Just a quick update from us here. There’s a slight change coming to the authentication that’ll concern those of you that’ve set up Authorize.net as a payment service in Xero. For now, you can leave the payment service settings as they are and they’ll continue to work.

We’re currently doing the work to add the updated authentication for existing connections in Xero, and will be in touch to request you update the payment service in your own organisation. You’ll need to make the update so the payment service will continue working with your sales invoices. Thanks, and I'll return again to let you know once the update is complete.
