"Authorize.Net interface"
Posted by Ryan on Oct-24-02 at 01:37 PM (EST)
The following is a small piece of an email I got from Authorize.net. Not knowing much about the actual interface, I would like to know if their eventual discontinuation of Weblink will effect how uShop connects or functions.

"SIM has been developed in part to accommodate for the eventual discontinuation of the WebLink and Relay Response connection methods. For more information about converting to a new connection
method..."

Thanks

We have received their new integration guide and are looking into implementing their new interface. It will most likely be available by the end of the year.

Bill,

Has any UShop progress been made on supporting Authorize.Net's new interface? I received an alert from Authorize.Net stating that the current interface must be replaced in user's code by March 1st, 2003.

I believe the deadline is actually April 30th, 2003.... but in either case, no, we haven't released an updated interface yet.

I am in the process of setting up a site for a customer that purchased Ushop. Do I understand this correctly? uShop does not work safely with authorize.net? Until SIM is integrated the only way to go about is to process each order through the virtual terminal.

uShop uses Authorize.Net's original interface API.

As of April 30th, Authorize.Net will be discontinuing that original API for a newer API.

By April 30th, uShop will support Authorize.Net's new API.

---

FYI. As I understand it, I believe the main problem with Authorize.Net's original API is that it doesn't prevent others (non-merchants) from using it to determine if a credit card number is valid or not. So hackers (typically from out of the country) would utilize the Authorize.Net interface to just see if stolen credit card numbers (obtained elsewhere) are valid or not. They would then go on to use valid stolen credit card number to place phone calls, etc. Authorize.Net typically charges the merchant for each credit card check.... so either the merchant or (if the merchant complain's about the extra charges) Authorize.Net - would be out of those fees.

8 . "Do you have an estimated date for ushop support of Authorize.net"
Posted by Philip Ly on Jan-24-03 at 11:37 AM (EST)
Hi,

Is there an estimated release date for the new version of Ushop that will support the new Authorize.Net SIM interface?

Thanks,

Philip

9 . "any other software?"
Posted by Pat Cherubini on Feb-11-03 at 09:37 AM (EST)
I have been waiting to purchase a license for a site but will not until it interfaces w/ Authorize.net. It seems like it will not happen and the other license that I use will be worthless. It has been "the end of 2002" now it is just "no release date set".

Does anyone have suggestions on other similar shopping carts that are compliant? I need a shopping cart soon and really like the simplicity and cleaness of ushop and already know how to use it but without Authorize.net I don't need uShop.

Posted by Brian Levine on Feb-11-03 at 01:33 PM (EST)
Geez...I guess we're having some problems understanding Bill's response to this question. Maybe I can translate:

1. uShop supports Authorize.net's current interface.
2. uShop will support the new Authorize.net interface before the old one is discontinued.
3. uBurst will post a release date for the next uShop upgrade as soon as they can reasonable determine it.

I don't know what anyone else thinks, but short of having a telephone #, support by uBurst has been exemplary.

12 . "I understand."
Posted by Pat Cherubini on Feb-12-03 at 09:49 AM (EST)
Please understand, I love the product and support has been great. This is why I have been patiently waiting and want to purchase again and again. I don't mean to put anyone down, I am a business man just trying to cover my a**.

I know that it works w/ authorize.net now as I am using it via the current interface. My problem is I have 2 more clients that will have fairly large inventories that have had time to wait but are getting antsy. I have heard you say that it will be compliant by April 30th. It was originally by "the end of the year". Obviously there are some issues that need resolved for it to be implemented. And since you cannot "resonably" issue a release date yet, I must believe that you are not that close to finishing. I cannot build these sites completly and take a chance that something won't work then have to start over with 3 seperate sites and learn a new cart program. I can't let these sites go down. I can't wait until the end of April hoping you will get it done.

Again, my apologies if I offended the product or the support as they are great.

13 . "authorize.net"
Posted by Ryan on Feb-13-03 at 09:07 AM (EST)
I originally posted the question about authorize.net's new requirments.

I am extremely satisfied with my other Microburt product (uReserve) and have also been waiting as patiently as possible for the new interface.

I think my concern and the concern of others posting here, is that the new interface will be in place, what April 30th I think someone said. To paraphrase the last ETA I heard from Microburst, the update will be available "before April 30th".

That is a little vague and it makes me very uncomfortable to think I might get an update to the most crucial part of my online store the day before it needs to be implemented. I hope it is really, really, really, really, easy to implement.

Waiting as patiently as possible,

Ryan Jackson
