authorize net Links Checkout Wizard Remote Processing

I've been following the excellent tutorials for eCart 5. I'm not finding anything for setting up the checkout for authorize.net to handle the processing remotely. While going through the steps Checkout Wizard, I specified remote processing and as attached, it defaults to the localhost settings.

1. Am I to assume that Site address and Local folder is something I need to obtain from authorize.net?

2. I'm not actually creating any pages on their site am I? That's something they already have in place? In which case I leave those fields blank?

3. Is there anything I need to do to get the customer back to my site once the transaction has succeeded or failed, as far as eCart is concerned or is that all a function authorize.net has in place?

Thanks

the site address is the address for your site where the user will do the shopping.


the local folder is the local root folder for the site files in dreamweaver.

the pages created are to collect information from the buyer before processing the transaction with authorize.net.

Okay. authorize.net works differently than other gateways we've work with where the customer gets pushed to the gateway's pages for all data collection.

1. Do I put these pages like checkout.php in the standard htdocs folder on our Network Solutions folder or do I have to do something with the mySQL server for Network Solutions?

2. Once the customer clicks on the Checkout button on checkout.php that's when the information is push to authorize.net?

3. Because I've given the Checkout Wizard our authorize.net Login ID and Transaction Key everything will link to authorize.net, there's no further information I need from authorize.net?

Thanks. The way this whole thing works is brilliant.

1) They can go in a subfolder if you wish, or they can be at the site root, it's up to you.

2) no, they go to the confirm page, thats when it gets sent to authorize.net

3) yes, that is correct.

This is moving along pretty well. I did indeed making it all the way to https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll and see:

The following errors have occurred.

(13) The merchant login ID or password is invalid or the account is inactive.

Is that error code an eCart issue or is something messed up at authorize.net?

Also, if I were to save the customer's information, where is that stored and what kind of file is it creating?

BTW: I used the API login ID not the Payment Gateway ID. I guess when the error message says password it mean Transaction Key?

on the conform page, there is a hidden form element that contains the merchant ID. the error says that the value of that hidden form element is not correct.

where you are using a remote checkout process, the user and order details will be available through the authorize.net account.

authorize.net has resolved this. Both the API Login ID and Transaction Key numbers we were given are incomplete. I guess I need to go back to the Display Manager and Checkout Wizard and start that page over?

no, you can edit them in the confirm page.

I changed them on this line:

<input type="hidden" name="x_fp_timestamp" id="x_fp_timestamp" value="<?php $WACalculatedHash = WA_CalculateHash("updated login id", "updated transaction code", "".$eCart1->GrandTotal() ."", "".AuthNet_RandomID() ."", "USD")?><?php echo $WACalculatedHash[1]; ?>" />

But still get the error code. Am I missing something?
