Authorize net for zen cartAs fraud runs rampant on the internet today, many online shoppers are looking more and more for “reassurance” that you are a legitimate online business.

If you use authorize.net as your payment processor on your zen cart store, one way you can give your visitors an extra feeling of security is to display their verified merchant seal.

Here is the way you can do that.
1. Log into your authorize.net account
2. On your main page once you log in, you will see a menu on the left. Look under Account and you will see a link for Verified Merchant Seal to click on
3. Click on the Sign Up button.
4. Read the agreement (no worries – this seal is free) and click the appropriate places to say you have read and agree with the terms.
Verify Seal5. In the box provided, list any distinct / different domains that you have that are a part of your authorize.net account. (no need to add sub domains). While I do not know if it is required, it is a good idea to make sure the way you type your domain is the way you purchased your SSL certificate. Eg: www.yourdomain.com or simply yourdomain.com with no www before it. No need to put the http:// before the domain name(s). After adding the domain(s) to the box, press the submit button.
6. Copy the code that is provided to you and paste it into the desired spot on your website.

If you want the code in a sidebox, there are a couple of ways to do this. One way is by placing the html code provided to you into your banner manager. Another way is to install the Sidebox Editable in Admin zen cart module.
