Request Documentation on the Authorize.net plugin
I am arranging for one of my sites to have an SSL certificate so I can host and accept recurring payments direct from my website. I would like to know a few things before activating the updated authorize.net plugin to a live site.
How do I cancel a recurring payment if someone wishes to cancel their subscription? Is it easy to track an old credit card transaction so I can cancel the correct future transaction.
Can I view the clients credit card information on file to match the information they give me when cancelling?
I noticed that only the Credit card, CVC and expiration fields show on the payment page when self-hosted - can more fields be added (like billing address).
When a recurring payment is received will it action the request to extend the listing expiry date to the correct website (I have a multisite setup)? Or cancel the listing if the payment fails or is cancelled?
Is there anything I need to set up with my authorize.net merchant account in order to start receiving self-hosted recurring payments?
I noticed this error shows up when I don't have 'Force SSL' enabled: "Gateway Configuration Error: Customer Information Manager is not enabled". I won't need to pay for CIM if I have an SSL certificate on my site and enable "Force SSL", right?
If I enable "Force SSL" will the payment process on my website without further errors?
I can't test this feature because I have not paid for an SSL cert on my test site but once my SSL certificate is enabled on my live site I want to make sure I set things up correctly. Any further advice or documentation would be helpful.
If anyone else is using the authorize.net with recurring payments hosted from their website, I would be interested to know how this is working for you. Let me know...
