    I'm creating a subscription form and I need to pass additional information to Zoho (more than I can seem to with jotforms alone). Is there a way I can get the subscriber ID or transaction ID from Auth.net after a form is submitted? 

     

    Thanks,

    Gabe

    Hello Gabe,

    Unfortunately, the API works one way. You can pass information to Auth.net, but not the other way around -

    Seems you want to pass the information (Subscriber ID/Transaction ID) from Jotform - Auth.net - Zoho..(please correct me)

    If so, Why not integrate directly with Zoho with our App? http://apps.jotform.com/app/zoho_crm_integration

    You can integrate both plafrorms at the same time and send the transaction/subscription ID fields to Zoho and auth.net...

    Let us know if this helps.

    Well yes, that is correct - I want to send info from jotform to auth.net and zoho, but I am already doing that (using your wonderful integrations!) I need to pass some info from Auth.net to Zoho as well (particularly the subscriber and/or transaction ID). Is there any way I can send that information to Zoho once the transaction occurs? I couldn't find the Invoice Number Field property on my form (it is for a subscription, if that affects it).

     

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, that is not possible with our current integration. Transaction ID or Subscription ID from Authorize.net is not visible when or during the mapping of fields. I can submit a feature request but I would advise to open up a new thread for that.

    Thanks

    I figured it out: 

     

    Use the silent post URL. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3413710/testing-silent-post-with-authorize-net An important thing that I didn't know is that you can not test the silent post URL in sandbox. The article goes over a way to test out a silent post URL script. 

     

    Hope this helps someone.

     

    Cheers
