    POST data to Authorize.net and have users enter their billing info on Authorize.net

    Asked by redpalm on September 23, 2015 at 01:51 PM

    I'm running into the same issue as Presscats and would prefer to have the same functionality.  You currently do this with Paypal, why not with Authorize.net?

    With Auth.net, I can integrate their DPM with a WooCommerce Shopping cart and put all the credit card info at auth.net.  Why can't JotForm pass the same info?

    The reports in JotForm are much cleaner then WooCommerce, so I would prefer to stay with JotForm, just because of this.

    Just to clarify, you wish for our Authorize.net payment tool to act the same way that a regular PayPal tool works. All products are presented on our form, user selects what they want to pay for, and then they get redirected to Authorize.net website to enter their billing information and process the payment.

    I am not sure if this is possible with the current APIs of Authorize.net, so I'm raising this as a feature request to our developers. If this is something that can be implemented in a similar way that our PayPal payment tool works, our developers will look into it, and we will let you know through this thread if it is implemented.

    In the mean time, I would like to point out that all transactions through our current Authorize.net tool are already PCI compliant - we do not hold or store any of the CC information, it is safely forwarded to Authorize.net for processing. This means that you can safely use our current Authorize.net tool for processing your payments.

    I hope this helps.

    Yes, you understand this correctly.  Woocommerce is doing this now, so the functionality exists somewhere.  Thank you for considering this request. 

    I understand what you are saying about the PCI compliant without the SSL certificates on our server.  With the current method, it still "appears" to the visitor that we are capturing the credit card data on our un-SSL site.  This could actually be the cause of some of our cart/form abandonments.  We have more abandonments using the Auth.net gateway then we do with the Paypal.  Appearances matter.  So, it would be awesome if you can figure this out.

    This has been assigned to a developer but given a rather low priority.  If this is something that can be added, it may take a fair bit of time before it is.  If more users request this feature, it is more likely to be implemented.
