Authorize.net CIM Extension Plugin
1. Make sure that you have the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin installed.
3. Extract the ZIP archive named
checkout-authorizecim.zip in order to be presented with a single folder named checkout-authorizecim.
4. Upload the
checkout-authorizecim folder to the
wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation, as seen in the example image below.
Once you have installed the Authorize.net CIM Extension plugin via FTP you need to activate it by visiting the normal Plugins > Installed Plugins section in your admin sidebar. There you will see the extension as a plugin listed amongst all the other plugins as in this screenshot:
Once you activate the plugin the Authorize.net CIM Extension will be available to be activated in the “Checkout > Extensions” section, the status shown as “Installed but Inactive” to the right of the description. Hovering your mouse cursor will cause a red “Activate” link to appear. Once activated, the red status message on the right becomes green text indicating an “Installed and Activated” status.
The Authorize.net CIM Extension plugin causes the addition of a new option in the Authorize.net (AIM) payment method under “Checkout > Configuration > Payment Methods” allowing customers to save their credit cards securely to file in order to reuse later again:
All that is needed is to simply Enable or Disable Authorize.net CIM in the Authorize.net AIM payment method configuration settings under “Checkout > Configuration > Payment Methods“.
