This isn't the official repository for the ruby authorize.net sdk. github.com/AuthorizeNet/sdk-ruby is where that is.

Authorize.Net Ruby SDK

The Authorize.Net Ruby SDK is meant to offer an alternate object-oriented model of development with the Authorize.net APIs (Version 3.1). The SDK is based entirely off the name-value pair API, but performs the core payment activities (such as error handling/parsing, network communication, and data encoding) behind the scenes. Providing the end developer with this allows the developer to start integrating immediately without having to write out a mass of boiler plate code.

Prerequisites

  • Ruby 1.8.7 or higher

  • Nokogiri 1.4.3 or higher

  • RubyGem 1.3.7 or higher (to build the gem)

  • RDoc 1.0 or higher (to build documentation)

  • Rake 0.8.7 or higher (to use the rake tasks)

Installation

Goto the Authorize.Net SDK download page and download the Ruby gem. Then

> gem install authorize-net-1.5.1.gem

Usage

Advanced Merchant Integration (AIM)

require 'rubygems'
require 'authorize_net'

transaction = AuthorizeNet::AIM::Transaction.new('API_LOGIN', 'API_KEY', :gateway => :sandbox)
credit_card = AuthorizeNet::CreditCard.new('4111111111111111', '1120')
response = transaction.purchase('10.00', credit_card)

if response.success?
  puts "Successfully made a purchase (authorization code: #{response.authorization_code})"
else
  raise "Failed to make purchase."
end

Direct Post Method (DPM)

A generator is provided to aid in setting up a Direct Post Method application. In the example below payments is the name of the controller to generate.

> sudo gem install rails -v '~> 2.1'
> rails my_direct_post_app
> cd my_direct_post_app
> script/generate authorize_net_direct_post payments YOUR_API_LOGIN_ID YOUR_TRANSACTION_KEY MERCH_HASH_KEY
> script/server

After running the generator you will probably want to customize the payment form found in app/views/payments/payment.erb and the receipt found in app/views/payments/receipt.erb.

There is also a default layout generated, app/views/layouts/authorize_net.erb. If you already have your own layout, you can delete that file and the reference to it in the controller (app/controllers/payments_controller.rb).

Server Integration Method (SIM)

A generator is provided to aid in setting up a Server Integration Method application. In the example below payments is the name of the controller to generate.

> sudo gem install rails -v '~> 2.1'
> rails my_sim_app
> cd my_sim_app
> script/generate authorize_net_sim payments YOUR_API_LOGIN_ID YOUR_TRANSACTION_KEY MERCH_HASH_KEY
> script/server

After running the generator you will probably want to customize the payment page found in app/views/payments/payment.erb and the thank you page found in app/views/payments/thank_you.erb.

You may also want to customize the actual payment form and receipt pages. That can be done by making the necessary changes to the AuthorizeNet::SIM::Transaction object (@sim_transaction) found in the payment action in app/controllers/payments_controller.rb. The styling of those hosted pages are controlled by the AuthorizeNet::SIM::HostedReceiptPage and AuthorizeNet::SIM::HostedPaymentForm objects (which are passed to the AuthorizeNet::SIM::Transaction).

There is also a default layout generated, app/views/layouts/authorize_net.erb. If you already have your own layout, you can delete that file and the reference to it in the controller (app/controllers/payments_controller.rb).

Automated Recurring Billing (ARB)

require 'rubygems'
require 'authorize_net'

transaction = AuthorizeNet::ARB::Transaction.new('API_LOGIN', 'API_KEY', :gateway => :sandbox)
subscription = AuthorizeNet::ARB::Subscription.new(
  :name => "Monthly Gift Basket",
  :length => 1,
  :unit => :month,
  :start_date => Date.today,
  :total_occurrences => :unlimited,
  :amount => 100.00,
  :invoice_number => '1234567',
  :description => "John Doe's Monthly Gift Basket",
  :credit_card => AuthorizeNet::CreditCard.new('4111111111111111', '1120'),
  :billing_address => AuthorizeNet::Address.new(:first_name => 'John', :last_name => 'Doe')
)
response = transaction.create(subscription)

if response.success?
  puts "Successfully created a subscription (subscription id: #{response.subscription_id})"
else
  raise "Failed to create a subscription."
end

Card Present (CP)

require 'rubygems'
require 'authorize_net'

transaction = AuthorizeNet::AIM::Transaction.new('API_LOGIN', 'API_KEY', :gateway => :card_present_sandbox)
credit_card = AuthorizeNet::CreditCard.new(nil, nil, :track_1 => '%B4111111111111111^DOE/JOHN^1803101000000000020000831000000?')
response = transaction.purchase('10.00', credit_card)

if response.success?
  puts "Successfully made a purchase (authorization code: #{response.authorization_code})"
else
  raise "Failed to make purchase."
end

Credit Card Test Numbers
