    I have a few questions about payment processing with aMember.

    First, when a user submits a payment, can he/she see the URL change to something like "" instead of "", or is this all hidden?

    Second, is there a testing mode when playing with aMember so that during configuration/testing, no credit cards get charged?

    Third, what is the best (in your opion) payment processing service to use that aMember supports? When I say best, I mean the smoothest, most secure transactions at the best price.

    Finally, I went to and they have a page on their site ( that lists partners. Why is aMember not listed?

    Actually, I have one more question: has the brute force security detection mechanism be implemented yet? If not, when?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I am heavily looking into a membership service and plan to buy the product soon.

    Thanks for your answers,

    1. With Authorize.Net, no, URL won't be changed - customer doesn't leave your site.
    2. Yes, there is tesing mode.
    3. It depends on your needs. Authorize.Net is one from best choices. I recommend you to offer PayPal as second payment
    option - aMember handles it easy.
    4. Unfortunately, we had no time for certification. However, I don't think you will find any membership software in this list - it
    is only shopping carts listed.

    Thanks for the reply Alex.

    In response to your post:
    Is this true for all of the payment processors you are compatible with, or just Authorize.Net?

    Thanks again for your time.

    No, there are processors which require customers to enter credit card info on payment system site, not on merchant site.
    For example: PayPal, PayFlow LINK(not Pro), ClickBank,, and so on. You have to understand, it is not script feature or lack, it is payment system policy.
