  • Sandbox Mode – when this option is set as enabled, the Authorize.Net payment integration enters Test Mode and it will not charge regular cards. This option is intended for testing the integration. By default, this option is disabled. Related Guide: How to Test Payment Tool on Sandbox Mode.
  • Authorization Only – the Auhorize.Net payment integration allows payment authorization or, also known as, two-steps payment processing. When this option is set as enabled, it is possible to authorize payment and capture it later. By default, this option is disabled. Kindly visit the following user guide for more details: How to Enable Payment Authorization.
  • Emulator – the payment processing services that support Authorize.Net emulation can be set on this option. With this feature, Jotform may still be able to send the transaction to these Payment Gateways that are not currently supported. This is, by default, set to None.

Once everything is set up from the Payment Settings, click the Continue button at the bottom to add your products. If you have chosen User Defined Amount or Collect Donation options, click the Save button, and you’re done.
