Authorize.net Recurring Support Manual?

8 years ago
I've noticed while setting up my Authorize.net payment method that it says that the recurring support is manual. What does this mean? Can someone please expound on this for me?

It means that you have to manually process next recurring payments (place a new order) when it's required. Go to admin area > sales > recurring payments, go to a required payment details page, then 'History' tab and click 'Process next payment (create a new order)' button

Is this able to be automated using Authorize.net's ARB API (http://developer.authorize.net/api/arb/) in a future version of nop?

Actually it already uses ARB API. All recurring payments are automatically processed on Authorize.net side. But Authorize.net does not notify nopCommerce store when a new payment is processed. That's why you have to manually click 'Process next payment (create a new order)' button in order to create a new order (it just places a new order without any call to Authorize ARB API web service because it's already processed on Authorize.net side)

If you look at the ARB Guide (http://www.authorize.net/support/ARB_guide.pdf) on page 22 it talks about how to send responses to a specified URL. In order for it to work the merchant would have to enable the silent post feature in their merchant account, but this could automatically notify nop that the transaction has occurred and send out the receipt to the customer. Would this be possible to add to nop?

Hate to resurrect an old thread but is there any update on this? This ties to my other question about "should there be an order entered in when the payments recur"
