Magento Open Source incorporates the Direct Post method for payments made through Authorize.Net. When payments are made with Direct Post, Authorize.Net handles all steps in the transaction process— such as payment data collection, data submission, and response to the customer—while the customer remains in your store.
Authorize.Net Direct Post can be used with orders created from the Admin as well as from the store. When creating an order, you can select it in the Payment Method section. After selecting the option, the credit card data entry fields appear. If the transaction fails, an error message appears, and you can select another payment method or try again with another card. The order process is similar to the standard order workflow. As with other orders, and invoice, shipment, and credit memo can be created.
When Direct Post is enabled, the customer can select it in the Payment Information section of the checkout process. After the customer clicks the corresponding option button and clicks Continue, the Order Review section of the checkout appears, with fields to enter the credit card information. The customer then specifies the card information and clicks the Place Order button.
If the transaction is successful, the customer is redirected to the order confirmation page. If the transaction fails on some reason, an error message is displayed in a dialog box and the customer may then select another payment method or try Authorize.Net Direct Post with another card.
