Do You Use Authorize.net For Your Carts Payment Processing?

It is possible that on June 30 your authorize.net credit card processing may stop. 

Authorize.Net has upgraded access to the Internet connections that serve thier data centers. Instead of allowing direct connections, all Internet traffic will be routed through Akamai, a third-party cloud network service that routes and delivers Internet traffic.

Using Akamai network technology will help decrease latency and improve the reliability of our payment gateway. It will also help safeguard against interruptions caused by issues beyond Authorize.Net’s direct control, such as Internet congestion, fiber cable cuts and other similar issues. Additionally, you should no longer be affected by planned downtimes.

 

This is a really good thing. In some cases you will need to chnage the urls n your cart or payment module to point to the new servers. They also will be automatically redirecting URLS to the new service, to prevent any one from having sales interuptions


But.....But.....But....

If your service stops on June 30, the deadline for authorizgeddon, you will have to manually change the urls in your code. Best to be careful and manually change them now.

NEW TRANSACTION URLS

https://api2.authorize.net/xml/v1/request.api
https://api2.authorize.net/soap/v1/Service.asmx
https://secure2.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll

 

You can change them yourself, or we can change for you ($49.95). You need to call us for this service 860-294-2444

But even if you have changed the urls, you could still have issues. You need to make sure that your website is not behind a firewall. Even the automatic redirect will not work if you are behind a firewall.

Using Akamai technology, Authorize.Net’s IP addresses will become dynamic rather than static. If your website or payment solution uses a firewall that has whitelisted Authorize.Net’s IP address or connects to Authorize.Net directly via an IP address, you will need to make additional changes.

Firewall Considerations – If your website uses a firewall to filter outbound connections, make sure that the firewall is set to permit outbound traffic to flow to the Akamai cloud by configuring your outbound firewall to “ANY.”

If you do not update your firewall ahead of June 2016, you will be unable to process transactions after Phase Two is implemented.

IP Address Considerations – If your solution connects to Authorize.Net directly via an IP address, you will need to update it to connect by domain name. Continuing to connect directly via an IP address is strongly discouraged as merchants will not receive the benefits of routing through Akamai, and could suffer a loss of service if transactions are re-routed among our various data centers.

If you need help, if your transactions stop after June 30, please contact us. We will need access to your server and to your firewall configuration settings.

Are you ready!
