Authorize.Net Apex Library: Salesforce and Authorize.Net Integration

Saturday, May 28, 2011 by Aslam - The Alexendra
Hi All,
Recently I came across one requirement where end user wants an easy way to pay fixed amount online from Salesforce to third party something like Donate page. In one of my previous post i showed you how you can do that using Paypal. Here is that paypal solution:

I was thinking to implement the same thing but this time end user wanted something simpler easy to use and easy to test solution. Then i found that 'Authorize.Net' is one of the good solution for this type of requirements. Then i created one simple ready to use online payment tool in salesforce using 'Authorize.Net' as payment gateway.

I found a good tutorial here in PHP how to make that here. I used the same idea and rebuild my Apex solution.

You can download the package from this link:

Before using the tool, you first need to follow some basic things:

1) For checking/testing the things you need first test accounts. Go to "test account" page on Authorize.Net and create one merchant account (Card Not Present).

2) Change your "login" and "transkey" variables in "AuthorizeDotNet" class with the merchant account's API login id and transaction id.

After that you can simply use VF page "DoPayment" to see how this works.

On click of submit you will get information about your transaction, if successful it will show you transaction id and success message. Otherwise will show error message.

Check out this easy cool stuff and give me feed backs as always.

If you want to extend this library with recurring payments and electronic check integration please check out Chargent (paid but free for partners and non-profits)

@jim: your tool is great :)

Nice handy one Aslam. One thing i am interested to know is to know integration with other legacy systems. I know that its a big topic, but to put it short: an example that walks through Integration (Both ways with SFDC)....As always your posts are good learning points...


Aslam - The Alexendra said...

@kumar: there are couple of tools to integrate between SFDC and your legacy system. Some are:
1) Cast Iron
2) Informatica
3) Talend

If you need is something different then you can use SFDC APIs and integrate using Java/PHP.

I am looking for some guidance/examples on using SFDC API's with .Net/Java...I am unable to understand outbound messaging whenever we want to sync data between SFDC and legacy systems..
Can you point me in right direction??.

Would it be easy to extend this process eCheck as well as credit card?


Mike said...


It was easy to extend this for eCheck as well. You rock!

Thanks again!

Aslam - The Alexendra said...

@Mike: Have you done for eCheck? If yes, please share the code with others

Great Post.


If I include the hosted page as an iframe in a VF page and try to get response on a salesforce site. It gives me a time out error. Anyone has a solution for this problem?

Does it requires Enterprise license? we have Professional but it requires Apex Clases. Does it works in Professional licenses?

Hi Aslam,

I'm getting the following error msg when submitting test transactions.

System.ListException: List index out of bounds: 3
Class.AuthorizeDotNet.getResponseText: line 160, column 1
Class.DoPaymentHandler.process: line 102, column 1

Earlier I was not getting this error message. Am I doing some thing wrong?

Aslam - The Alexendra said...

On line number 84, there is debug statement
system.debug('#### ' + this.response);
for printing the response of your API call. Please check in debug logs what you are getting. then only i will be able to answer

Uzair said...

Hi Aslam,

Thanks for your quick response.

In debug log I got this message "Unauthorized endpoint, please check Setup->Security->Remote site settings. endpoint =".

Now I have created a Remote Site with the given url i.e, ''; Now it is working fine.

Thanks for your time.

Hello Aslam,

This tool is awesome! I have integrated doPaymentHandler in another class. I have tried both (1) creating an instance of it:
DoPaymentHandler dph = new DoPaymentHandler();
then assigning the variables
dph.firstname = b_fistName;

and (2) bring in the functions and variables into my class.

I call then call the process() function. It process the information but then i don't get any response from Authorize.ned so
public string getResponseText()
return this.results[3];

returns null.

I have ran the same info through you dopayment page and it works just fine.

Any Ideas???

Brian L Bartholomew said...

sorry it does not return null it return index out of bounds error

Brian L Bartholomew said...

So the issue was that it was never actually making it to that point. so response would be null because it was never set. the problem was that i was trying to make a http request after i had made a dml statement. i reversed the order and now it works.

Can you please let me know you are using which method of Integration ?

Hi Aslam,

I would like to try out your code, but how do I install it onto the sandbox? It seems that it only takes my login to the live site. Thanks in advance!
