    Testing Credit Card transaction

    Asked by alchait on May 31, 2011 at 11:43 AM

    I'm building a form to use that involves an Authorize.net credit card transaction. The person I'm building this won't give me the Authorize.net key until she sees a test run.  I can't do a test run without the key.  It's a catch 22.   How do I get around that?

    Also, I've never actually used a credit card in a Jotform form before?  Does it let you know if the transaction was approved?  Is it secure?

    I'm not sure if this will help but you can try getting a test account here.

    As for the security, yes, Authorize.net transactions made through Jotform is sent via secure connection. It will display a message if the billing information is correct and the payment is approved or not.

    If you have furthere questions, please let us know. Thank you for using Jotform.
