I am trying to implement authorize.net in my VB6 Application.  Its a really simple app so I just want to add the ability to use the program to make a payment.  I already have a server setup that listens to this client and I can add funds to the account.  Its a Matter I guess of taking the ASP version and converting it somehow to  A VB form.  If anyone is familiar with this or how this would be done let me know.  I have the asp script if you want it it's readily available for download from Authorize.net

thanks.

I did something for Authorize.net using ASP some time ago...but it's a little hazy.  Can you post the ASP code here to refresh my memory and give me an idea of what needs to be done to port it to VB?

Yeah I will Link it here because they gave me 4 files.  Since I'm not too familiar with ASP I will link them all on my companies web site

Hmm, doesn't refresh my memory much.  I remember they provided a pdf document with all of the data you could post to their gateway.  Essentially, from VB, you just need to post the necessary data and get the reply, e.g.,

Go to Project -> References and select Microsoft XML, vX.0 (whatever the latest version you have is)


Then do something like:


Dim xmlPostData As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP

xmlPostData.Open "POST", "https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll", False
xmlPostData.setRequestHeader "Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
xmlPostData.send "x_type=AUTH_CAPTURE&x_method=CC&x_Amount=5.50"
MsgBox "Reply from server:" & vbCrLf & xmlPostData.responseText


You just need to determine what all variables you need to send in the "send" method above, and then parse the responseText to determine if the transaction was successful or not.
