Authorize.net is a leader in payment processing, so it’s no surprise that our WooCommerce Authorize.net AIM payment gateway integration is one of our top plugins.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve rewritten the WooCommerce Authorize.net AIM extension to improve reliability and performance, and taught it some cool new tricks 🙂 . Version 3.0 is being released today, so you can download the update or purchase from WooCommerce!
What’s in Authorize.net AIM Version 3.0?
The major addition to the extension this version is eCheck support. Customers with US bank accounts can checkout using their bank account information for a checking or savings account. To use this feature, you must have an active Authorize.net eCheck account.
We’ve also added the ability to capture prior authorized transactions right from the WooCommerce edit order screen. Previously, you’d have to log into your Authorize.net account to capture any authorized charges, which made store management cumbersome. Now all management can be done from within WooCommerce with the addition of a “Capture Charge” action:
Charges that have only been authorized will be “on hold”, and will be updated to “processing” once the charges have been captured.
Yep! We’ve enhanced error handling and CVV/AVS checking for improved performance. We also updated payment fields, as they are now templates for easier customization of the checkout process. We’re working on adding a “For Developers” section to the plugin documentation with more details on customizing these templates so that you can make your checkout process as customized as you want.
We’re very excited to roll out these new features and changes in order to make sure you have the most advanced integration possible when using our WooCommerce products. Let us know what you think of the new Authorize.net AIM!
