POS using Filemaker 13

I have developed a new Point of Sale using Filemaker Pro 13, which allows me to utilize httppost and httpspost protocols. Could someone lead me in the right direction as to how I would go about connecting to the gateway?

 

I'm fairly well versed in Filemaker, but new to payment gateways. Thanks in advance.

Sound like you can do AIM

 

which is as simple as posting to

https://test.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll?x_version=3.1&x_type=AUTH_ONLY&x_amount=1.99&x_card_...

 

and read the response back which is in a delimited string.

 

Read the doc in

I would also recommend taking a few minutes to watch our developer training videos.  They offer excellent tips for getting started with Authorize.Net and payments from a developer point of view.

I'm sorry to seem stupid, but I need more of an explaination.

I would next review our new API Reference currently in Beta.  You can even use console to try transactions.
