Locating Authorize.NET API Credentials

If you’re testing Authorize.Net you may choose to use the Authorize.Net Sandbox. Otherwise, follow the steps below:

To locate your API credentials:

  1. Log in to your account at https://account.authorize.net/
  2. Navigate to Account -> Settings
    Authorize.Net Creds
  3. Click “API Credentials & Keys”
    Authorize.Net Creds
  4. On this screen you’ll want to gather your Login ID and Transaction Key. Make sure you copy these into the respective Live API Credentials fields on the LifterLMS Checkout Settings screen on your site.
    1. Login ID can be copied directly from this screen as depicted below
      Authorize.Net API Login ID
