If you are looking for a way to accept online payments securely on your WordPress site or eCommerce store using Authorize.net as your payment gateway, I have got good news for you.

You can now accept payments with Authorize.net on your WordPress site using a simple forms plugin. Using WPForms and the Authorize.net add-on, you can now accept credit card payments seamlessly on your website no matter which device the user is on. Also, you can choose whether it needs to be a one-time payment or a recurring subscription.

You can just configure it once and you’re all set.

Prerequisites

SSL Certificate

But, before you can get started with using Authorize.net as the payment processor on your WordPress site, make sure you have enabled SSL (HTTPS) on your website as it is required while collecting sensitive information and processing payments on your website.

Elite License

Also, you need a WPForms Elite license to take advantage of this feature. If you’re new to WPForms, you can check out my WPForms review. WPForms is one of the best form builder plugins for WordPress. Fortunately, building payment forms is one of their most popular features. I have already written about creating payment forms, order forms, and donation forms with Stripe and PayPal before. Do check it out to get an idea of what WPForms can do for you.

If you haven’t got WPForms yet, you can get it by clicking on the below button.

Once you have installed and activated WPForms and the Authorize.net add-on on your site, go to WPForms –> Settings from your WordPress dashboard menu and click on the Payments tab. From here, you can choose the currency that you’d like to use for processing the payments.

On the same page, you can also find the Authorize.net section below where you can enter important details like your Authorize.net API and transaction key. You can get these details from your Authorize.net account.
