Same here. Even Paypal Virtual Terminal (my backup in case AuthorizeNet goes down) is also not working. I can get to the secure.authorize.net login page, but when I submit my login and password, I get the following error:
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01a8'
Object required: 'documentElement'
/merch/evalvars.asp, line 203
When are they going to learn you can't run a financial web site on Microsoft servers.
We use the same terminals restaurants use and key in ourselves. This never goes down. Also allows us to stay on top of fraud.
Of course this is slower so soon we will be automating so we just run our credit cards through in batches - but why do you all use authorize net when you can just do the programming yourselves? Am I missing something?

Even more shocking about the situation is that Authorize.Net actually posted on their site that they had a problem.
Unplanned System Downtime At approximately 11:45 AM Pacific time, the payment gateway experienced a brief unplanned downtime. Your ability to process transactions and/or access the Merchant Interface may have been temporarily disrupted.
"The reliability of the payment gateway is one of our highest priorities. Our engineering team worked quickly to resolve technical issues and restore uninterrupted functionality as soon as possible. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced as a result of this unanticipated downtime.
Transaction processing and Merchant Interface access are now fully restored"
Usually we just wonder what happened and if it was them or our internet connection hicupping..
You just need to program to your credit card processor - no need to pay authorizenet fees - you can get yes/no responses quickly with your own processor too - I see no need for authorizenet - in regards to security - just encrypt the data and for further protection delete it daily or weekly. What do you guys think of icverify or pc charge?
