Simple, seamless checkout
Using the Authorize.Net extension allows you to decide what your checkout process will look like, while keeping the customer on your site for the entire process. This gives you maximum control over this experience, providing a simple checkout process for the user and maximum customizability for the business owner.
Mobile checkout is enhanced as well, offering automated card formatting and numerical (
tel type) fields for easier input.
You can now opt to show detailed decline messages to your customers, no more “an error occurred” error messages!
Authorize.Net includes Accept.js support for improved security in credit card payment processing! Customer credit card information is no longer sent directly through your server and instead is handled directly by Authorize.Net, meeting the lower level PCI SAQ A-EP compliance level. The customer doesn’t see a difference in the checkout process, but payment data is more secure behind the scenes. Best of all, the Authorize.Net plugin gathers the required information on your behalf, so there’s no additional setup required.

Support for automatic refunds & voids
Shop employees can now process refunds for an order paid for with Authorize.Net directly from within WooCommerce — no more logging into your merchant account to process refunds! Speed up your store management by creating full or partial refunds from the “Edit Order” screen and sending the transaction automatically to Authorize.Net by clicking “Refund via Credit Card”.
If the transaction has not been captured or settled, a transaction void will be performed automatically instead to cancel the order.
Securely save customer payment methods
Customers can easily & securely save multiple payment methods to their account for faster checkout, which are displayed in unified “My Payments” section of their account. Payment data is stored on Authorize.Net’s secure servers, so your responsibility for PCI compliance is significantly reduced. There’s no limit to the number of payment methods a customer can store on their account, and both credit cards and eChecks are supported.
Customers can also change their active payment method, add payment methods, and remove payment methods from the My Account page. The “Add Payment Method” workflow is seamless and tokenizes card information for future use without requiring the customer to go through checkout!
Please note that you must have the CIM service enabled for your Authorize.Net account to take advantage of all features offered by this gateway.
Full support for Subscriptions and Pre-Orders
Authorize.Net is the ideal gateway for WooCommerce Subscriptions, offering support for all of Subscriptions features – payment date changes, subscription date changes, and more. Even better, customers can sign up for subscriptions with a credit card or eCheck. The gateway also fully-supports WooCommerce Pre-Orders, so you can take customer’s payment information upfront and then automatically charge their payment method once the pre-order is released.
Full support for Authorize.Net eChecks
Customers with US bank accounts can checkout using their bank account information for a checking or savings account. To use this feature, you must have an active Authorize.Net eCheck account.
You can optionally display authorization messages for eCheck transactions if required by your merchant account. Supports WooCommerce Subscriptions to show a “recurring charge” message as well!
Capture Charges directly from WooCommerce
Some users choose to set the payment gateway to only authorize charges rather than authorize & capture them. However, this requires the user to then log into the payment gateway admin to capture charges. Versions 2.0+ of this extension allow you to optionally capture previously authorized transactions directly from the WooCommerce Edit Order screen rather than logging into your Authorize.Net control panel to do so. Simply edit the order, select the “Capture Charge” action, and charges will be captured through Authorize.Net.
When using a WooCommerce Authorize.net Payment Gateway, you can also avoid all of the hassle of logging in to your Authorize.net account and running complex reports just to get a simple list of transactions. Try the WooCommerce Authorize.net Reporting extension. After you install and configure the extension, you’ll start receiving a daily email with your Authorize.net transactions from the previous day attached as a CSV. You can also get transactions for a range of dates easily right from your WooCommerce store!
