This article describes the process of connecting Authorize.Net as your payment gateway.
Tip: There are four different payment gateways that you can choose from to make sure that online donations flow seamlessly into your Kindful database: Kindful Payments, Stripe, Authorize.Net, or PayPal.
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:
- Transaction Key
- API Login ID
- CIM needs to be enabled on your Authorize.Net account through Settings
- Enable the Transaction Details API in your Authorize.Net account. Read more about it here.
- Update your CVV Validation Settings:
- CVV Validation on charge must be Disabled
- CVV Validation on Add Card can be Enabled if you choose
*It is our recommendation that you do not enable the Fraud Limit Setting inside of Authorize.net for the best experience.
The next section will walk through how to gather this information and get Authorize.Net connected to your account.
Note: You might get emails from Authorize.net periodically, alerting you that they are about to upgrade to their most recent version. It will also prompt you to reach out to us to make sure we are compliant with that version. Rest assured, we stay on top of this, and your Kindful account will always stay up to date, and fully compliant with every version of Authorize.net.
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 Settings > Fundraising Settings > Gateways 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.|
Scroll down to Authorize.Net on the Gateways page 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).
