INSTRUCTIONS: Locate the Authorize.Net Aim Payment Module in your shopping cart and change the POST TO’ URL FROM: TO:

Depending on the shopping cart and its payment module you may need to change the post to URL in 1,2 or 3 places. It’s best to find the AIM payment module and then change it everywhere in this file.

Here’s a tip, do a search in the AIM file for “.dll” to help you find the URLs to replace with the emulator url.

Admin Settings:

Login to your Admin Panel and open the “Payment Methods” setting for Authorizenet. If it gives you a choice to select the AIM module because this will allow customers to stay on your site when they purchase from you. Once you get to the settings you can enter the following information:

  • API Login ID: This is your Fastcharge Account ID (FCXXX)
  • Transaction Key: This is your Fastcharge “Merchant Pin”
  • Mode: We always suggest “Live Mode”
  • Gateway URL: If you have this option enter
  • MD5 Hash: We now ignore this but you can enter “7gt77lyst555r7677yt”
