Merchant Account Setup – Authorize.Net

Authorize.net is a leading merchant/payment gateway that is fully integrated in the Mobile Food Ordering system, and the Merchandise  tabs…

First, you’re going to want to set up a Merchandise tab or Food Ordering System. Once this is complete, you can choose your payment gateway on step #2 of the platform. Find and locate the Authorize.net section.

In order to retrieve this information from your Authorize.net account, you are going to follow 3 steps.

1) Go to https://account.authorize.net/

2) Once logged in, find the “Settings” on the left hand side of the screen

3) Now, you will see a link that says “API Login ID and Transaction Key”

IMPORTANT: Be sure to record your Transaction Key immediately in a secure manner. Authorize.Net does not allow the retrieval of an existing transaction key. Following the previous instructions, you will get a new transaction key and disable any old transaction key. You will need to update that Food Ordering Tab or Merchandise Tab with the new Transaction Key within 24 hours, otherwise credit card processing in the other software will be disabled.

It is highly recommended that you create a new Transaction Key regularly, such as every six months, to strengthen the security of your payment gateway account. REMEMBER: Update that Transaction Key if you do this, otherwise you will not be able to receive payements.
