Here, you can give this product a name (usually will match your membership level name), select which level(s) your members get access to when they purchase this product (the “Access” setting), whether it's a one-time payment or subscription and all the details of the subscription (if you choose that option).

Once finished, click the “Save and Close” button.

WARNING: Authorize.net does not process subscription transactions in real time. Creating a subscription transaction successfully does not guarantee subscription payments will process through your Authorize.net account successfully.

Subscription transactions are processed at approximately 2:00 a.m. Pacific Time on scheduled payment dates. Therefore, the first scheduled transaction is not sent to the customer's bank for authorization until approximately 2:00 a.m. Pacific Time on the start date that you specify when you create the subscription in your Authorize.net account.

If you create a subscription with a start date that equals the creation date, the first scheduled payment does not process until after 2:00 a.m. the following day. This is purely a function of how Authorize.net's recurring billing works. WishList Member™ has no control over this. You can read more about Authorize.net Recurring Billing and Subscriptions here.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The integration charges a one cent ($0.01) payment to the card when a subscription is created in order to ensure the credit card is valid. That payment is immediately refunded once the card is validated successfully.

Next, head over to the page or post where you'd like to insert your purchase button for this product. Click the “Add New Block” button and enter “classic” in the search bar. Then, select the Classic Block from the list.

In the Classic Block, click on the blue WishList Member icon, then select Integrations > Authorize.net (ARB) Integration > Name of Your Product from the dropdown list.

This will insert a shortcode into your page.

This will display a purchase link on your page.

When clicked, a payment form will appear where new members can enter their payment information, buy this product and register to the selected membership level.

This completes the integration setup process.
