    You really handle authorize.net transactions?

    Asked by chriswible on May 26, 2010 at 11:09 AM
    I was actually checking out JotForm to see how your service is because some people in my company are using it. I was delightfully surprised. I'm going to continue digging around on another topic, but one thing that really boggled me is that you offer payment gateway forms!

    Please help clarify this for me...

    I'm building a simple online store on a secure server. My client has an authorize.net account. If I wanted to, I could put a JotForm at the check out page and your service would handle the validation and authorization with Authorize.net? Is that the case? If so - do you return a response that I can use in my application? Is there some documentation available on integrating this sort of thing with my own site, like an API?

    Your service looks fantastic. I was considering building almost the same thing for my company, but I may simply recommend we get a premium account with you guys.

    Yes, that's exactly what we do. All you have to do is to get "API Login ID" and "Transaction Key" from Authorize.net site and enter them on the payment wizard. We handle the rest for you.

    There are no documentation yet. Since we are still busy with the minor problems on JotForm 3.0 we haven't had a chance to work on the documentation for this. But basically what you do is to add an Authorize.net field to your form, complete the payment wizard (enter API information, add your products and product options etc.) and that's pretty much all.

    When the user submits the credit card information, we do not keep the information in our servers. We make sure to keep it out of our logs or database entries for security reasons. We just transfer the information to the Authorize.net API. Then Authorize.net tells us if the charge was successful and then we complete the form submission.

    If you have any further questions please let me know.
