Connect Authorize.Net as a Payment Gateway

This article describes the process of connecting Authorize.Net as your payment gateway. It’s part of Step 3 in the Quick Start guide.

  Tip: There are three different payment gateways that you can choose from to make sure that online donations flow seamlessly into your Kindful database: Stripe, Authorize.Net, or PayPal.  

Overview

If you don’t already have an account with Authorize.Net, learn more and sign up at authorize.net.

All you need are the following items:

  1. Transaction Key
  2. API Login ID
  3. CIM needs to be enabled on your Authorize.Net account through Settings
  4. Enable the Transaction Details API in your Authorize.Net account. Read more about it here.

The next section will walk through how to gather this information and get Authorize.Net connected to your account.

Connect with Authorize.Net

Log in to Authorize.Net at account.authorize.net.

Click on Settings under Account on the main left menu.

From the Security Settings section, click API Login ID and Transaction Key.

Enter the Secret Answer to your account's Secret Question.

Once you’ve found the API Login ID and Transaction Key in your Authorize.Net account, go to Basic Settings in Kindful.

  Tip: You may want to keep this Authorize.Net window open, as you'll need to copy and paste both the API Login ID and Transaction Key into your Kindful account.  

Select Payment Gateway.

Scroll down to Authorize.Net and select Sign Up & Connect.

In this window, enter your API Login ID and Transaction Key (if you need to pull this window up again after already clicking Sign Up & Connect, you can click Settings under Authorize.Net instead).
