The process works like this:

You worked hard to open your store, great job!  Next, your customer hands you a credit card or calls with credit card information to purchase a product. You will either swipe the card or enter the numbers manually and move to the next step.
Authorize.net takes over after you enter the credit card information.  The transaction, securely sent via Authorize.net’s gateway service, proceeds to your Merchant Bank’s Processor.  Next, the proper credit card network (Visa, Mastercard, etc.) receives the transaction from your Merchant Bank’s Processor. Finally, the bank that issued the credit card receives the transaction.
Time for the decision!  The issuing bank checks the level of funds in the customer’s account.  The bank consequently decides whether to accept or decline the charge and the process starts over in reverse order.  First, the credit card network receives the decision from the issuing bank.  Next, your Merchant Bank’s Processor receives the decision and then, finally, Authorize.net.
Authorize.net receives the transaction result and then posts the result back to the website.  In an online store scenario, your client will see a notice if the card is declined or a confirmation of the sale.  You may choose to sign up for email notifications as well.
