Rootways offers Magento 2 merchants a seamless integration with the Authorize.Net CIM payment provider. The highest level of safety of the customers’ payment data is ensured by the support for Authorize.net Accept.js and AcceptUI.js Hosted Payment Form. By enabling Accept.js, you will increase the security of payment transactions, since the credit card data will be forwarded directly to Authorize.Net without storing any details on your server. The Accept.js feature also helps e-commerce business owners to follow the PCI Security Standards requirements.
The enhanced security is also achieved by the Magento Vault functionality supported by the Authorize.net payments module. With the function, payment information specified by a customer at the checkout is converted to a token stored in the Magento 2 database. Thus, no sensitive cardholder data is forwarded to Magento.
Customers can safely use cards saved in their accounts for future purchases on your store. This feature also improves user experience on the storefront since online shoppers don’t need to spend time on specifying their payment information each time they want to buy something from your website.
As for the Authorize.Net hosted payment form, it allows capturing payments without storing any credit card details on the merchant’s side. As a store owner, you decide whether you will offer customers to enter their payment details on your website’s checkout or via the secure AcceptUI.js form.

With this feature enabled, iOS users can fully leverage Apple Pay Wallet without entering any credit card data on your website. Besides, you can place the Apply Pay button on the shopping cart page, as well as in the mini cart, providing online shoppers with an ultra-fast checkout via one click. Apple Pay instant purchase is available for guest website visitors as well. Apple Pay also allows for the increased compatibility with the PCI standards.
It is also necessary to mention that the Authorize.Net CIM Magento 2 module fully supports AVS (Address Verification System) and CVV verification. The billing address and CVV number verification can be enabled in the backend for the extra security check.
As for the backend functionality of the extension, it allows store managers to create orders using customers’ saved credit cards, capture full or partial order amount, create multiple invoices for the same order, generate partial credit memos, and more.
