Main Information

If you use one of our commercial versions, you will be able to enter the name and description in different languages. This feature requires to have joomfish installed and can be activated in the configuration page, in the display tab. The languages available will be the ones in joomfish. If you don't enter something for a translation, it will just use the default information in the Main information tab instead. After you click on save or apply an additional publish icon will appear next to the fields where you entered something in the languages tabs so that you can easily enable or disable them. The default publish status can also be changed in the configuration page of HikaShop.

Additional Information

  • Currency: Choose the currencies allowed by this payment method.
  • Authorize.net url : The url to which your users are redirected to for the payment. This should not be changed unless you know what you are doing.
  • Login ID for Authorize.net : The login ID you received from Authorize.net after you registered on their website.
  • Transaction key for Authorize.net : The Transaction key you received from Authorize.net after you registered on their website.
  • Your MD5 Hash on Authorize.net : For increase security we highly recommend you to set a MD5 hash value on your authorize.net account and then put it here so that notifications from authorize.net can be verified. More information on authorize.net website: http://developer.authorize.net/faqs/#md5. This parameter is only useful for the SIM API. Also note that the MD5 Hash should only have up to 20 characters (it's a limit from Authorize.net).
  • Instant capture : If activated, the transaction will be authorized and the funds will be captured automatically. If deactivated, the transaction will be authorized only, and the merchant will have to manually validate the capture via his authorize.net merchant account interface.
  • Allow notifications from Authorize.net : If set to yes, the plugin will handle the Authorize.net payment notifications and automatically validate the orders after checking that the notification is valid. This parameter is only useful for the SIM API.
  • API: Here you can select which API of Authorize.net to use. The SIM API will redirect the user to the authorize.net payment plateform and the credit card information will be asked at that moment. The AIM API will directly ask the credit card information on your website and will process the transaction in the background. You will need two things in order to use the AIM API: 
    • The PHP lib cUrl installed and enabled on your website. That will be used by HikaShop to contact the servers of authorize.net in order to process the transaction. If you can't establish a connection from your website because cUrl is not activated or because your hosting company blocks outgoing connections, you should ask their support for help as we can't help you.
    • A SSL certificate configured on your website and the option "Force SSL on checkout" activated. That is not mandatory but highly recommended since your website will be collecting the credit card information before sending it to authorize.net. That is absolutely necessary in order to be PCI compliant if you use the AIM API.
  • Card validation code : If you have the CCV option activated in your authorize.net account, you will have to activate this option so that the CCV of the credit card is collected and then transmitted to authorize.net. This parameter is only useful for the AIM API.
  • Debug : You can activate the debug mode of the Authorize.net payment plugin. If you do so, informations about each notification received from Authorize.net will be logged in the payment log file. You can see and modify the location of this file in the configuration page of HikaShop. Also, that will turn on the "test mode" of Authorize.net so the payments won't be processed by Authorize.net.
  • Return url : The url you want your users to be redirected to when they finish their payment on the Authorize.net interface. By default, they will be redirected to the after_end page of the checkout process which will thank them for their order.
  • Authorize.net logo url : You can set here an url for a banner image which will be displayed on top of the payment page on Authorize.net.
  • Invalid status : Here, you can select the status to set to an order if the plugin receives a notification from Authorize.net for an order with an amount different from the order total or with an invalid status. In that case, we highly recommend you to check your Authorize.net account, the order information, and maybe contact your customer, and decide yourself what to do with the order.
  • Pending status : Here, you can select the status to set to an order if the plugin receives a pending notification from Authorize.net for an order. A pending notification means that the customer entered his payment information but that Authorize.net could not yet receive the funds. In that case, we highly recommend you to check your Authorize.net account, the order information, and maybe contact your customer, and decide yourself what to do with the order.
  • Verified status : Here, you can select the status to set to an order if the plugin receives a successful completion notification from Authorize.net for an order.
