    Why do I receive errors with the payment option I added to my form?

    Asked by risingstarca on February 09, 2013 at 06:53 PM

    I have integrated a payment option in my form that I have linked through Authorize.net.  I have all fields filled in with informationa and the credit card information is correct as well.  This is the error I'm receiving when I try to submit my form:

    Error during transaction
    Ship To First Name is required. 

    Please go back and fix this

    That's probably because you have set First name as Required on your Authorize.net Form Fields. To fix that, set the First Name as non-required.

    1.  Login to the Merchant Interface ( https://secure.authorize.net )

    2.  Click on Settings and Profile -> Payment Form -> Form Fields

    3.  Uncheck the Required box for the particular field.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

    New response receivedHI,
    I don’t understand because I want the First Name field to be required. On my JotForm, even when the First Name field is filled in, I’m receiving the error message about the First Name being required. What other information do you have?
    Thank you,

    Hi Roxanne,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I can't seem to replicate the required first name error anymore however after investigating the case further, I have observed that your form's required validation is not working properly on your page which is caused a by code conflict. I would recommend to re-embed your form using iframe embed code to avoid this problem. Test your form afterwards.

    Please update us. Thanks!
