Py-Authorize supports most all of the’s API functionality including:

  • Advanced Integration Method (AIM)
  • Customer Integration Manager (CIM)
  • Transaction Detail API/Reporting

    'amount': 40.00,
    'credit_card': {
        'card_number': '4111111111111111',
        'expiration_date': '04/2014',
