One of the reasons I chose wordpress is wp-e-commerce’s ease of use with authorize.net (I had read about how it is easy to implement).
I’ve been looking to start credit card acceptance for 2 weeks and can’t seem to find any help out there…Can someone who has set up authorize.net/credit card payments on one’s own wp-e-commerce site please point me in the right direction? Do I need the gold cart upgrade? Do I need to contact authorize.net directly for an account, or is it better to go through a reseller providing both merchant account services and the authorize.net payment gateway?
Any leads would be helpful. Many thanks.
Yes you need to upgrade to get Authorize.net gateway. They have it at Get Shopped upgrade page and it is $40. This plugin has one major problem and that is the license. It will not let you but a license for unlimited installs and it is not clear as to if anyone can use the plugin or only organizations. I have emailed them several times but it confused me even more. I think they just need to make an all exclusive license for everyone or maybe one of the other competitors will.
I have several WP e-Commerce stores and have rolled-out stores for clients, each Premium Plugin for WP e-Commerce (e.g. Gold Cart) provided by Instinct has a Name and API Key assigned against each license.
As far as I’m aware there are no bulk-licensing but I have not asked, I’ll raise it on Monday.
Best be careful. I tried in vain to get pre-sales support from WP-Ecommerce as so many people have issues with the Authorize.net plugin. See their forums and do your due diligence in Googling for “WP-ecommerce” and “wordpress shopping cart plugin” etc. and you’ll see the mass number of complaints against Wp-ecommerce.
I’ve only had experience with them and Phpurchase. Phpurchase installed and worked in 5 minutes. It also worked with other plugins unlike wp-ecommerce.
Not trying to trash anyone, I know wp-ecommerce has been around a while, but it doesn’t work for me and it doesn’t work for a lot of other people.
Phpurchase is also pci compliant btw…cheers
