Authorize.Net is a payment gateway that is compatible with many banks and online merchant accounts. This service is only available for business owners that pay tax in USA, Canada or UK.

Follow these steps to activate the Authorize.Net payment solution:
- Go to Settings -> Payments & Invoicing -> Card payments and click “Edit”.
- Select “Authorize.Net” in the drop-down menu.
- Enter the “API Login ID”, “Transaction Key” and “Signature Key”. You will find these details in your Authorize.Net account. See Authorize.Net Support Center for guidance.
- The “MD5-hash” field can be left empty. If you have it added already you can leave it and it will soon be automatically removed. When you add a “Signature Key”, this key takes precedence. See this articlefrom Authorize.Net.
- Set “Environment” to “Test mode” to test with your sandbox account that can be obtained for free here.
- Indicate the type of prepayment that should be requested.
- Make a test booking through your website to find out what your guests will see. Try the payment link to make sure it works. If you are using test mode, go here to collect credit card numbers to use for this purpose.
- Change “Environment” to “Production/Live” and the credentials to production credentials. Make a real payment the same way as you did in test mode.
