    Request: A payment tool that can process 3rd party Post URL

    Asked by Sholomb on May 13, 2014 at 07:21 PM

    I need to change the POST URL for an Authorize.net emulator. Is there a way I can do that?

    I recieved an answer to look into http://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    I don't believe that will work here as I need the Authorize.net piece within the form to post to a different URL

    I apologize, please disregard my previous response as it was the wrong answer.

    From what I have searched so far, it seems this is not possible to do this in the form.

    But I also found this on Authorize.net developer page 


    You will need to do it in the Test mode in your Authorzie.net account.

    To set the Authorize.net tool to Test sandbox mode please use this guide

    I'm asking the same question that was asked here.


    I need the Authorize.net tool to post transactions to either of these two URLs

    It appears what you want to achieve is to have all your payment reciepts POST to a custom URL  - which would include details such as the name and value of the transaction.

    I think you may be reffering to Silent Post as shown here

    Implementing it is shown on this link


    Or perhaps you want to run the  transactions in sandbox mode and send the POST notifications to your URL's?

    1. You want to run Authorize.net in Sandbox mode

    2. You want the  Authorize.net transaction to post the details to the two URL's you provided (still in test mode, not live)

    I have also raised our developers so that they can advice further regarding your request.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Thank you for your time and effort.


    As I'm not using Authorize.net as my payment processor I am unable to use their solutions.


    However, my payment processor has an authorize.net emulator. In order to use that, I need to change the POST URL of the Authorize.net widget on my form to use one of the two URLs above to POST.

    After analyzing your concern what you want is to have an option to change the POST URL when payment form is submitted and yes I don't see any option under properties of Authorize.net payment gateway. I'm not sure what is the current URL when form is submitted but from what I know you want to change that to the URL's above. Probably add an option under properties to use POST URL.

    Your concern will be addressed and notified via this thread for updates.

    Thank you for your patience.

    I am afraid we cannot implement this. Our integration specifically says Authorize.Net, so payments should be processed by Authorize.Net only.

    Sorry about that.

    Thank you for your responses.


    In the long term, I would suggest that you add another payment method called generic and let people change these things around as they see fit. Many gateways offer an emulator that functions identically to authorize.net. You may be opening your doors up to bigger business.


    Hoewver, at the moment I'm forced to take my business, such as it is, elsewhere.


    Thank you

    Thank you for your feedback and our apologies if we're not able to meet your requirement.

    FYI, your feature request is still on the list. Hopefully our developer will be able to find ways similar to what you called "Generic Payment Gateway" for custom Post URLs. However, as stated by one of our developer, it can't be added within the Authorize.net Payment Tool and I also couldn't assure you of anything about this as he is more known to this function.

    You will be posted here if somehow there's any updates about your request. Have a nice day!

    Authorize.Net emulation is now possible.

    1.  Select your form's payment field

    2.  Right-click on it, then click Show Properties

    3.  Select from one of the available merchant gateways

    4.  Save your form

    Do let us know if you encounter any problems.

    This is fantastic.

    Thank you for adding this in.


    However, we're now trying to set this up and running into some issues. We're using MerchantOne. When the account information is entered as instructed, we get a response that the id or password is invalid. I've logged into the actual merchantone website using these credentials and they work there so....


    I'm open to suggestions!
