Step 3: Setup Your Store

Once you have your Transaction Key you will need to enter it into Store-Logic:

  1. Once your account has been finalized you will be sent an API Login name and API transaction key. Record these for entry into your store admin.
  2. Go to the "Payment" section of your store admin in the "Operations" menu.
  3. Make sure that the icon next to Authorize.net is green indicating that Authorize.net is the active payment gateway.
