I need to build an Authorize.net payment gateway in CF. I'm
fairly experienced in CF, but I need a little help. I downloaded
the authorize.net developers PDF. Just so I understand the basic
architecture, I am going to be collecting variables on a secure
page and sending them to a specific page on authorize.net. Then
Authorize.net will do its thing, and send me back some variables.
Is authorize.net going to send these back to the same page
that does the sending (and basically reload the page?)
The documentation also says the response fields will be
"comma delimited" and "not encapsulated" - In general I'm used to
variables being sent as either form or url variables. My guess is
that Authorize.net has a selection of "optional" variables you can
send them, and that it returns you one big form variable that's
comma delimited, and its up to you to pull the information out of
Is there someone with experience with this that could shed a
little light on the process (and maybe even a little code).
I've implemented several Authorize.net gateways, and found
their documentation to be outstanding. It does take some work,
since your dealing with SSL, credit card theft issues, etc. But the
quality of their documentation makes that chore manageable.
