Setting up Authorize.Net payments

Navigate to QPilot Merchant Center > Dashboard > Payment Integrations. Once there, select the "Add" button (blue circle with the "+" sign in it) to add a new payment integration.

Make sure that "Test Mode" is enabled, select the "Payment Method Type" dropdown, and then select
"Authorize.Net", enter the sandbox API Login Id & Transaction Key. When you're done, select "CREATE". 


You should now see a new Authorize.Net payment integration in your Payment Integrations list.


Why should "Test Mode" be Enabled?

  • We strongly suggest testing your new Authorize.Net Payment Integration before going live. Testing with your Authorize.Net Sandbox will quickly verify that the integration is working as expected before attempting to process any live payments with QPilot.
  • You can review Authorize.Net's testing guide complete with test card numbers in their documentation here.


Need an Authorize.Net Sandbox Account?

Go to to sign up for an Authorize.Net Sandbox Account so you can safely test your Authorize.Net payment methods with QPilot.

How to Create a New Authorize.Net CIM Customer Profile Manually

In cases where a customer wants you to enter their payment information manually using Authorize.Net, and have that payment method saved for QPilot, merchants can add a new customer profile to their Authorize.Net CIM directly and then create or edit a Scheduled Order with the payment data added to Authorize.Net. Customer Information Manager (CIM)

  1. Login to your Authorize.Net Customer Information Manager (CIM)
  2. Within the CIM, select "Add Profile" (at the top) 
  3. Fill out the customer's user and billing information:
    • Email: Customer's email
    • Billing Address
    • Payment Type: Credit Card
    • Card information: Number, Exp Date, CVV
    • Shipping Address (if different than the Billing)
  4. Select 'OK' to create the Customer in the CIM
  5. Now that the Customer is added to the CIM, you can safely add their Customer Profile ID and Payment Profile ID to create a payment method for their Scheduled Order.
