Deprecation Notice
Due to the Payment Service Directive PSD2 and the continued evolution of many APIs, this payment integration is at risk of becoming outdated and no longer security compliant in the future. Additionally, Authorize.Net has deprecated the Authorize.Net Direct Post payment method. We recommend that you disable it in your Magento configuration and transition to the Authorize.Net Magento Marketplace extension.

This integration will be removed from the Magento 2.4.0 release and has been deprecated from current versions of 2.3.

For details about making a secure transition from deprecated payment integrations, see our DevBlog.
