How to Add Authorize.net to your Wufoo Forms
If you are a Premium Plus Member, you have the ability to accept credit cards on your Digital PTO website. One of our credit card processing options is with a Traditional Merchant Account and Authorize.net. There are a few requirements for setting up your credit card processing with Authorize.net.
- You need to have a wufoo account set up by Digital PTO. If you have not completed the request to add a payment form to your website, please be sure to submit your request here.
- You will need to apply for a merchant account with our partner, Capital Merchant Solutions and get access to your Authorize.net account. If you need to apply with CMS, please click here.
- You will need to activate your Authorize.net account by logging in for the first time and completing the final steps.
Once you have completed the steps above you are ready to get started!
Step 1: Log into your Authorize.net Account and click on the Account Tab
Step 2: Click on API LOGIN ID & TRANSACTION KEY
Step 3: Follow Instructions to Create a New Transaction Key and API Login
If you do lose your API info, you can generate a new Key, BUT the old key will be deleted and thus BREAK YOUR FORMS, so we can not stress enough how important it is to record this API info and keep it in a safe spot. In the event that you need to create a new API key, be sure to update ALL of your wufoo forms that contain the old transaction key or they will not work.
Once you have recorded your API info, you can log out of Authorize.net.
Step 4: Log info your Wufoo Account
Step 5: Click on the PAYMENT link under the form you want to add payments to
Step 6: Paste your Authorize.net API info in Step One
Step 7: Review Enable Payment Option and Save Settings
If you do already have prices enabled and set, you do not need to uncheck the ENABLE PAYMENT box. This simply allows you to save the API info without having to complete all the other steps.
Congrats! At this point, your API info is saved and you are ready to assign prices to your form.
