    Please login to your Merchant account and in your Authroize account Interface, go to your Settings -> Payment Form -> Form Fields and uncheck the required box for the e-mail address.

    Another way is setting your form email field to be required field. I would also recommend setting your form into a secure form since you will be collecting payment information. To make a form secure, please follow the instruction on this link.

    If you need further assistance, please contact us again.

    May I suggest you test first the Authorize.NET integration using the TEST Integration button


    "But my client DID enter an email address, and they DO want email to be required."

    I am not sure if you are still refering to the Authorize.NET integration. Did you meant to say, that when a customer is about to donate it requires the email account? I cannot see the email being required in a payment or donation transactions

    Hope this help. Please inform us if issues persist.
