Re: aim php •The merchant login ID or password is invalid or the account is inactive.

In future, please use a code box (fourth option from the left in Rich Text mode).

 

Error 13 generally means that you tried to use a sandbox (developer / test account) login on the production URL, or a production account login on the sandbox URL. It can be confusing, but test mode is not the same thing as test server.

I did it with testmode true and testmode false

Re: aim php •The merchant login ID or password is invalid or the account is inactive.

Set test mode false then add this after:

$transaction = new AuthorizeNetAIM('YOUR_API_LOGIN_ID', 'YOUR_TRANSACTION_KEY');

 

IF YOU HAVE A DEVELOPER ACCOUNT:

$transaction->setSandbox(true);

 IF YOU HAVE A PRODUCTION ACCOUNT:

$transaction->setSandbox(false);

Re: aim php •The merchant login ID or password is invalid or the account is inactive.

I added this $transaction = new AuthorizeNetAIM('YOUR_API_LOGIN_ID', 'YOUR_TRANSACTION_KEY'); $transaction->setSandbox(false); at the top of the php and got this error Fatal error: Class 'AuthorizeNetAIM' not found

You have to have uploaded the SDK to your site and then included either the AIM library file, or the master file. If the SDK is in the same folder as your page:

 

require_once 'anet_php_sdk/AuthorizeNet.php';

Re: aim php •The merchant login ID or password is invalid or the account is inactive.

I found the sdk require_once 'anet_php_sdk/AuthorizeNet.php'; now I get the same error that I had when I opened this question The merchant login ID or password is invalid or the account is inactive.
