WordPress plugin to take donations through Authorize.Net?

This question came in through Twitter today.

 

Anyone know of a WordPress plugin to take donations through Authorize.Net and not Pay Pal? #WordPress

Re: WordPress plugin to take donations through Authorize.Net?

I've looked at the wordpress forums and there is definitely need for a plugin like this.

 

I need one to set up a donation page for a charity that wants to use authorize.net to accept donations via credit cards and e-check.

 

There is also a need to be able to check "recurring" and pick a date for the recurring donation.

 

If a plugin like this is discovered I definitely want one!

I wrote a wordpress plugin that does exactly that:

In fact, http://www.ugmportland.org/donate/ is using it to take donations on their website.

 

Cheers,

I think your plugin doesn't work with e-check though.

 

Or does it?

 

Two other questions:

 

Can the donor pick a date for automatic withdrawals or does the date have to be the current date?

 

Is their a confirmation page after entering donation amount and cc / check info, etc.?  Where the donor can click "confirm" or "change?"

You're right that it doesn't work with e-check right now, although that's a good feature idea.

 

All dates are keyed of the transaction date.

 

There's a checkout page where they provide their details, including address, cc, etc.

Let me know if you add the e-check feature.  If I haven't found a different solution by then I will certainly consider your plugin.

Any hope that you will set up to use eChecks in additon to credit cards on that plugin?

 

I just opened my authotize.net account and my need is now immediate.  :-)

Re: WordPress plugin to take donations through Authorize.Net?

we just released a plugin that will also accept eChecks - we had to do it for a client and thought we'd publish it more widely as well. see it at

 

http://www.social-ink.net/blog/simple-authorize-payments-wordpress-plugin-collect-donations-payments...

 

 It's not GPL at the moment (hence no listing in the WP dir) but we're working out the remuneration/GPL issues as we speak.

Dang!  I would have used that before if it had been available!

 

Will it work with Bluehost?  How do I contact you?

Hi thirstyjon -

I have not tested it with bluehost but there's no reason it shouldn't (though I do know BH has some peculiar configs with their shared hosting).  You can visit our site at the URL I posted above and contact us there through the contact form or email us at info@social-ink.net

Thanks!
