If you don't mind, I'd rather wait to see if @ElaineM chimes in to confirm what you said about Simple Checkout before marking this thread solved.

Re: Converting from Simple Checkout to Accept Hosted in Wordpress

Hi pokerxanadu

 

Yes, it is true that both SIM (Server Integration Method) and Simple Checkout, which both use the legacy Authorize.Net hosted payment form, are deprecated and both are on the docket for end-of-life, there are no set dates when this will occur yet however my suspicion is that it will be sometime later this year. The Upgrade Guide has stated for many years that the SIM hosted payment form users should upgrade to Accept Hosted. I do see a WP Accept Hosted solution on the WP site, although it is for WooCommerce powered sites. 

 

You may continue using Simple Checkout for as long as it is available to you however. It won't be disabled without notice. Please note that the SIM hosted payment form, and Simple Checkout as a result, do not receive updates for card network mandates, new features and as a reslut may be out of compliance. 

 

Regards, 

Elaine

@ElaineM

Is there a reason simple checkout isn’t on the list of deprecated products? And what would the merchant have to do when it expires? I

Re: Converting from Simple Checkout to Accept Hosted in Wordpress

And why is the simple checkout still advertised as a solution on the main auth.net page? I know of no other potential EOL product that is offered this way?

@pokerxanadu

I just looked at your code. This is from the WP app in question? That is not simple checkout. That looks like a DPM or AIM integration, and it looks like you are posting raw cc data on your server.

Re: Converting from Simple Checkout to Accept Hosted in Wordpress

Ok, I see. That is your new plugin. Get rid of that ASAP.

@ElaineM, I think all this poster cares about is that the application works. And it will work until the simple checkout endpoint to post to changes. I do not think that endpoint will ever change, even after the payment form is update. Simple checkout is not an API based integration so I do think that for this users needs it is fine to just do nothing with the app at all. I imagine this is why this solution is still on the main sales page of auth.net. I am sure they will update the appearance for the hosted form, but as long as the post url doesn’t change it will not impact the app.
