    Hello usara.  Can you try doing the following:

    Login to the Authorize.net Merchant Interface ( at https://secure.authorize.net ), click on Settings -> Payment Form -> Form Fields and uncheck the Required box for the phone number (uncheck the e-mail if it requires the e-mail address as well).

    If you have other questions or concerns, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Thank you. I did this and this corrected the issue. I was confused because I had my form setup to ask for and require an email address and phone number but I assume that since these fields were not a part of the actual Auth.net field I still needed to disable them through my merchant account administration management control panel. JotForm is the best solution I have found for form on the internet.
