POST for ARB and XML for AIM?

I found the POST guide for AIM and the XML guide for ARB. http://www.authorize.net/support/CNP/helpfiles/Miscellaneous/Implementation_Guides.htm

 

Can AIM use XML and POST, and can ARB use XML and POST? Same URLs?

 

 

Is there a deprecated method if they are interchangeable?

Re: POST for ARB and XML for AIM?

I found an XML guide for AIM, so AIM supports POST and XML.

 

XML Guide: http://www.authorize.net/content/dam/authorize/documents/AIM_guide_XML.pdf

POST Guide: http://www.authorize.net/content/dam/authorize/documents/AIM_guide.pdf

 

 

I never liked XML, but it works. I will just use XML for both ARB and AIM, rather than two different methods. XML uses one API URL while the POST uses a different API url; so just using one also helps for switching between production/testing easily. 

 

I could use the SDK, but I ran into issues with it in the past.

I would recommend using XML for your integration instead of NVP.
