Authorize.Net provides merchant account services in the United States. When you integrate with the Authorize.Net merchant gateway, you are able to process payments through any method (order forms, shopping cart, or manual orders). It will also handle auto-charges for subscription or payment plans. When a customer submits payment through the Authorize.Net gateway, they never leave your company website - Authorize.Net simply processes payments on the back end.
Once your Authorize.Net account is approved and activated, you will need to integrate it with the Infusionsoft E-Commerce component.
Note: If you are processing international payments, you will need to activate this option on your Authorize.Net account through Account > Address Verification Services. Uncheck the G, U and S fields and then save the changes.
Please Note! If you do not have the shopping cart / order forms plugin, your menu will look similar to the one below. You would go to E-Commerce > Payment Setup
- Go to E-Commerce > Settings
- Click on Payment Types.
- Check the box next to the credit card icons and click the "Add new"
- Select Authorize.Net (Card Present Method) from the Merchant Account drop-down
- Fill in the Authorize.Net Card Present Account Information.
Some of this information must be obtained from Authorize.net. (Visit the Authorize.Net Support Center.)
- Name: The name should be short and descriptive. It is used to identify this merchant account in various lists throughout Infusionsoft (e.g. Authorize.Net A.)
