    Hi Pete,

    To my knowledge, it is not possible to do so. A unique ID field is sent to our servers separate from the payment field data which are sent to Authorize.Net using their API. There is no way to have that field passed as an invoice number to Authorize.Net because the payment field is handled by codes that are different from the rest of the form.

    This would be a good addition to our features though, so I am adding this to the feature requests list. However, please be advised that we cannot guarantee if or when a requested feature will be implemented. Currently, our development team has a lot of things going on. I don't think this will be implemented or even approved anytime soon. We will notify you in case there is an update to this ticket.

    I am in favor of this feature request. Please consider since companies create more than one form or product, and this is the only way to distinguish between the transactions on the Authorize.net site. Thank you!

    Yes!  This would be huge!  Our accounting team needs to distinguish what event is being paid for.

    @All

    I am happy to inform you that it is now possible to send an invoice number to Authorize.Net for your form transactions using either a hidden box or a unique ID field.

    To do this:

    1.  Add a Hidden Box or Unique ID field to your form
    2.  Select your payment field, right click on it, then choose Show Properties
    3.  Choose a field whose value will be used as the invoice number for purchases made using your form
    4.  Save your form afterwards

    Please let us know if you need further assistance, or if you have any feedback regarding this newly implemented feature.

    Best regards
