Authorize.net Recurring Transactions not occuring
I am running a child theme of Vantage called Coloured and I am using the authorize.net plugin as my gateway. I have set up recurring monthly subscription plans. On the wordpress end of it, the transactions are showing up as Authorize.net-Pending, then a day later as Authorize.net-Activated. On the Authorize.net side, the transactions are not showing up at all. There is no actual transaction being processed. I know the plugin is set up correctly because I am able to take the initial payment with no problems, but the recurring payment is the one I am having an issue with. The plans are set us as Forced recurring with the listing duration being 1 month.
On a related note, why does Vantage create two or even three transactions per order when there should only be one transaction and maybe a second one that is created for the following month?
