    I'm really confused with aMember and Authorize.Net.

    I just signed up for Authorize.Net and got their Automated Recurring Billing™ (ARB) option; however when in aMember it says that I need their Customer Information Manager (CIM) integration in order to process recurring payments?

    1. So what's the difference between ARB and CIM when it comes to recurring payments and aMember? Why doesn't aMember just connect to their ARB service?

    2. Do I need BOTH Authorize.Net ARB and CIM services?

    3. Do I need an SSL certificate installed for this to work?
