    Modify Authorize.net URL to ability to use an Authorize.net emulator

    Asked by skipjensen on September 11, 2014 at 11:29 AM

    My merchant services provider has an Authorize.net emulator that we use on our main web site. In order to implement it so I can use them on my forms, I need to change the URL that the transaction posts to. Is there a way to modify that URL within Jot Form ? If not, how do I go about integrating my own merchant services ?

    Are you referring to the Sandbox mode to emulate authorize.net payment? Sandbox test mode has already been added before.

    Please check this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/221-Run-your-form-using-Auth-net-payment-tool-in-Emulator-Mode.

    That is for testing Authorize.net accounts. Because Authorize.net is so ubiquitous, most merchant gateways have emulators that make use of the Authorize.net fields and structure, but run the transaction thought their own gateway. All the developer needs to do is change the URL that the transaction posts to. If I can modify that URL, I can use JotForm for my simple commerce forms. If it cannot be changed, then I cannot use JotForm. 

    Thank you for your help.

    This has been requested every once in a while but we don't currently offer this ability. The URL information is posted to is managed on our side and can't be readily changed by users. Here are a few other requests:



    I'll add this to our feature request list, and this ticket will be updated if we implement it.

    Thank you-

    It seems a simple update if the URL were a field in the setup dialog of the app. 


    Take care-

    We're looking into implementing this, but are most likely going to control the URLs on our end. We would then add them manually as users request them. Otherwise people might use the gateway to steal CC numbers. Can you let us know what URL you'd like the data posted to so we can review it?

    We have added an initial list of payment gateways supporting Authorize.Net (SIM) emulation.

    To choose one for emulation:

    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

    If the payment gateway you are using is not on the list, let us know and we will gladly add it, provided that they do support SIM emulation.
