Authorize.net is a Payment gateway. You still need a merchant account to set up Authnet.

You can use the 3rd party resellers at www.authorize.net

Or we use United Bank Card at www.unitedbankcard.com

The poster above summed it up. Try to avoid using authorize.net's parent company (cybersource) as your merchant account. Fees are high, plus they hold onto your money for up 5 days after capturing, before depositing into your account.

It is not easy to maintain the merchant account. Some time it create problem when payment due. There lot of complains about these accounts.

You should just use BigCartel. They have it where you can for $10 a month or $20 if you wish, to have a shopping cart which you can customize, and it takes care of all of that. you get stats and everything. It seems more worth it to me to do that then anything, because than you are dealing with all that crap which is time consuming.
