Setup an Authorize.net Payment Gateway
There are multiple ways to setup an Authorize.net Payment Gateway. When creating an account, be sure to select an online merchant account.
1. Do it yourself through Authorize.Net
- Online Application

After creating your Authorize.net account be sure to check that your gateway is not in Test Mode as this will prevent it from going live and taking payments. See this brief article for instructions on how to disable Test Mode.
Contact the LeagueApps team (firstname.lastname@example.org OR 1-800-257-3681) if you have any issues or questions.
Congrats! Your account is ready to accept online transactions!
