Why link your Authorize.net account
You don’t have to link your Authorize.net account with ShipHero as we charge the orders through your platform and don’t require a direct link to Authorize.net to do so. The advantage of linking your Authorize.net directly is it allows you to charge your customer cards for orders placed within ShipHero.
How to link your Authorize.net account
On https://app.shiphero.com/dashboard/settings/authorize-net you can link your authorize.net account to ShipHero.
For Type you can choose AIM or CIM. AIM is the default Authorize.net account type. CIM is Customer Information Manager which is optionally paid add-on to Authorize.net which allows you add additional charges to customer’s cards after the initial authorization. Choose whichever one you have. If you’re not sure, choose AIM.
Then add your Authorize.net ID and Auth Key. You get those from Authorize.net by going to Account then API Credentials & Keys.
You’ll see API Login ID, enter that in the Auth ID field in ShipHero. Create a New Key and enter that as the Auth Key in ShipHero.
Create a new Transaction Key and enter that as the Auth Key in ShipHero.
If you’re Authorize.net account is a testing account known as sandbox account, check off Sandbox Account otherwise leave it unchecked.
