Authorize.Net provides payment management solutions that help merchants accept and manage credit card and electronic check transactions via websites, retail stores, mail order/telephone order (MOTO) call centers and mobile devices. This article will give you an overview of the Grow/Authorize.net integration.
How to Connect
First, log in to your Grow account and click Add Metric. Select Authorize Net from the list of data sources, then press the blue Connect button.
To connect your Authorize.Net account, you’ll need your API Login ID and your Transaction Key.
To find your API login ID and transaction ID, sign in to your Authorize.Net Merchant Interface. On the main toolbar, click Account.
Select Settings from the left-hand menu, then click API Credentials & Keys. You may need to enter your Secret Answer to get to the page.
If you have already generated a Login ID, it will be shown on that page. Go ahead and copy your Login ID.
To get the transaction key, select New Transaction Key. (NOTE: If you do not check the Disable Old Transaction Key Immediately box, the old transaction key will expire 24 hours later.) Press Submit, and your transaction key will be displayed.
You will want to copy your transaction key (and possibly store it somewhere), because it is not visible at any other time in your Merchant Interface.
Once you have them, paste the values into Grow and press Submit.
And that’s it! You’re good to go.
Below is a list of reports that the Grow/Authorize.net integration offers, along with a short description of each.
- Settled Batches: Batch ID; settlement time and details; statistics charge, charge back, returned items, and errors amounts, counts, corrections, among other details.
- Settled Transactions: Transaction ID, submit time, transaction status, invoice number, contact information, account type and number, settle amount, subscription info, among other details.
FAQs + Tips and Tricks
Here are some key things to know about the integration:
- Data is limited to 31 days when you first pull it in. However, if you create a stored report with your data, you’ll be able to pull more data back.
- Data comes back in US dollars. If you are trying to get transactions in forms of money other than USD, you may need to do some conversions. Check out this article for help on doing that.
- Batches vs. Transactions. A transaction is an individual transaction. A batch is a group of transactions that have been gathered over a certain period of time and are submitted together to the appropriate processing networks for clearing and settlement.
