Authorize.net For Caldera Forms: Getting Started

Authorize.net for Caldera Forms

Using Authorize.net with WordPress is made possible with Caldera Forms, and the Authorize.net payment processor plugin. This document shows you how to integrate Authorize.net with WordPress using responsive forms created with Caldera Forms.

In order to accept payments with Authorize.net using Caldera Forms you will need to have an active Authorize.net account, the Authorize.net For Caldera Forms Payment Processor, and Caldera Forms 1.3 or later installed and activated.

Important:  Authorize.net for Caldera Forms requires that your site uses the secure HTTPS protocol. Please configure a valid SSL certificate, and set your site to use HTTPS before attempting to use it on a live site. Sandbox mode is available via the insecure HTTP protocol for testing, but no actual transactions can be made via HTTP.

Obtaining your Authorize.net API Keys

Log into your Authorize.net account, and then from dashboard look in the left-hand sidebar and scroll down to the “Account” section and click on the “Settings” item. In the Settings page, find the “Security Settings” and click on the “API Login ID and Transaction Key: link.

On the page that links you to, you need to find and record these two pieces of information:

  • API Login ID
  • Transaction Key
