Does M1 release work O.K. with AuthorizeNet


Recommended Posts

I am about to hook my store up to a merchant account and am leaning toward the use of AuthorizeNet. However, I have seen several posts that seem to indicate that the M1 release (which I am using and have heavily customized) does not work well with AuthorizeNet. It appears to me that a contribution must be installed, but there are several AuthorizeNet contributions available, and I am not sure which to use.


Can anyone guide me in this regard? I will probably be using Wells Fargo for CC processing. The AuthorizeNet Advanced Integration Method (AIM) is recommended by AuthNet, so I guess that is what I will use (although I don't really understand why). If SIM is better for some reason, that's OK by me.


Finally, the process of setting up the merchant account is a vast, dark wilderness to me. I have no clear idea what the process involves. I am supposing that I start by selecting AuthorizationNet payment module in Admin, but I have no idea what happens next. I've tried to do a test order with the current AuthNet module, but I have yet to get the test order O.K.'ed. -- Much to do


Any help will be appreciated.

Some people had no problems integrating the AIM/ADC contributions while some had a lot. I fall into the category of having a lot of problems. I recently decided to update my authorizenet files from v2.2 to MS1 and used the SIM method. The SIM method was much much easier for me and things work smoothly now. No more CURL headaches!
