I'm considering using Merchantinc.com's payment gateway services (Authorize.net) on my website, but would like to know what, if anything, is required on the server side. I believe Curl has to be installed, but am not sure what else would need to be done as far as Inmotionhosting is concerned. I can do whatever it takes to configure my site, but just want to be sure it's going to work properly when all is said and done. I'm using ZenCart v1.5.1 by the way, which has an Authorize.net module available within it. I also have a Comodo SSL cert installed for my site.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Hello Guido49,

Thanks for your question. You do not have to do anything on the server side in order to get the gateway service to work. Of course, you do need to have an account with Authorize.net. It is also my understanding that you don't need a SSL in order to work them, since the transaction would actually jump to Authorize.net's server (which is secured) and then jump back to your website when the transaction is complete. You can see more information on this from an article I found with a web search:

Thanks for your reply! If I go with the company I previously mentioned, the Authorize.net account is included. I just wanted to be sure that it will actually function properly without me having to jump through a bunch of hoops. I should have mentioned that I'm on a shared server...does that matter in any way?

ZenCart should have pre made feature to use Authorize.net . Being on a shared server will not effect it.

No problem, Guido49.

It will not matter if you're on a shared server. In fact, we normally have a merchant services option for Authorize.net available through our cPanel. Let us know if you need any further assistance!
