Authorize.Net is one of the world's largest payment gateways, serving over 400,000 merchants. Their services allow you to accept payment from your customers, by credit card or eCheck, straight from your website. You must have an Authorize.Net account to use this extension (account fees will vary).

This extension brings Authorize.Net's Customer Information Manager (CIM) service to Magento 1. Authorize.Net CIM takes payment processing to a whole new level, by allowing your customers to store their payment info on Authorize.Net's secure servers. This gives you and your customers the convenience of stored credit cards, with all the security of Authorize.Net. It also allows us to give you many advanced features that most payment methods aren't capable of.

Looking for Magento 2? We have a Magento 2-compatible version already available: Authorize.Net CIM for Magento 2


We know what you want: A proven solution that just works, with all the features you'd expect, from a reputable company that stands behind their product.

Our payment methods are used on thousands of Magento stores, to process billions of dollars a year. We know what we're doing, and we've been doing it a long time. Payment is a fundamental part of your business, and it's a fundamental part of ours too. We'll help you make sure it never becomes a problem.

Authorize.Net CIM on Magento1 checkout


This module supports all standard payment actions. It also allows customers to save their payment info for future use. This gives returning customers the convenience of stored credit cards and rapid checkout, without breaking PCI compliance.

The first time a customer checks out, they are given a form to enter credit card details. If they choose to save the card, next time they check out they can reuse that card with a single click. Your customers can also view, add, edit, and delete any of their stored payment info through a 'Manage My Cards' interface in their account. All frontend features are also available in the Magento Admin Panel.

  • Pay by credit card or ACH (eCheck)*
  • Save credit cards (tokens) for reuse
  • Add, edit, and delete saved payment data
  • Edit orders and reorder, without having to ask the customer for CC info again
  • Authorize, Capture, or Save CC Info (without charging) at time of checkout
  • Capture funds even after the authorization expires
  • Partially invoice orders (including reauthorization on partial invoice)
  • Partially refund (online credit memo)
  • Send shipping address and line items to Authorize.Net
  • Require CCV code when adding a card, or with every purchase
  • Validate billing address with Address Verification (AVS)
  • Protect against fraud with Advanced Fraud Detection Suite (AFDS) and hold-for-review
  • Integrate your systems thanks to Magento API support
  • Use a different Authorize.Net account for each website (multi-store support)

* This extension has built-in support for ACH processing. ACH is configured as its own payment method, and can be enabled or disabled at will. To process ACH payments, you must apply and be accepted by Authorize.Net. For more info, please see Authorize.Net's eCheck.Net FAQ.

Authorize.Net CIM allows admin card management


Stored payment info is good for your business and customers.

  • It simplifies checkout.
  • It encourages customer loyalty.
  • It streamlines order management and integrations.
  • It lets your staff quickly process orders and billing changes, without needing customers to repeat their credit card info.

All frontend features are available in the admin panel. This means admins can view, add, edit, and delete customers' stored cards, and place orders using them.

When editing an order, you can reuse the payment info, even for guest orders.


Authorize.Net Certified Solution

This is an Authorize.Net Certified Solution since 2013, listed in Authorize.Net's official certified solutions directory. Our payment modules are used on thousands of Magento stores, and our reviews speak for themselves.

Authorize.Net Accept.js data flow


All communication with Authorize.Net is performed with TLS encryption, and no confidential cardholder data is ever stored on your own server. A process called tokenization is used to run transactions with stored payment information. This lets your customers pay with a 'saved' card that's not on your server at all.

We also support Authorize.Net's proprietary Accept.js API. Accept.js allows credit card information to be sent straight from your customers' browsers to Authorize.Net, without touching your web server at all. Instead, Authorize.Net gives us a one-time-use token (nonce) that refers to it. Since your web server never sees the raw credit card number, this improves your website's security and reduces your PCI compliance exposure.


PCI Compliant

PCI compliance is a complex and multifaceted issue, covering every aspect of your business. We can't guarantee that your business is PCI-compliant. That depends on your server, policies, processes, regular security scans, other payment methods offered, and a lot more. What we can tell you is that this extension will not prevent you from being PCI compliant. We don't store or log confidential cardholder data, or do anything else that would bring you under scrutiny.

The exact PCI scope of this extension depends on your configuration.

  • If you enable Accept.js, using this payment method for all credit card transactions may make you eligible for PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) A-EP.
  • If you do not enable Accept.js, this payment method falls under the scope of PCI SAQ D.

For details on the SAQ types and what eligibility means, see "Self-Assessment Questionnaire Instructions and Guidelines (3.2)" (PDF, by PCI Standards Security Council).

Great extension, solved our problem with Authorize eliminating their direct post method. The CIM feature works very well.

Fantastic. This plugin was originally put onto our store by an external developer, but your team walked me straight through identifying where they'd customized it, and how I could update it to the modern version.

Functional and stable

We needed the "save my card" feature for our new B2B dealer portal. The idea is that the business owners populate the saved credit card info once, after which their buyers can use it for purchases without being able to see the info. Very stable, a great extension. Since purchasing the extension, we receive Paradox newsletters, which I find useful to understand what's happening in the Magento world.

Delivers as Promised + Excellent Support

Have tried both versions 1.4 & 2.0 of this module.

Both function as promised. If part of your business requirements is always needing the CCV code for all transactions, not just the first one to create a CIM profile, you will need v2.0.

Support is superb. Very responsive, articulate and extremely reasonable.

Any bugs I've submitted have been resolved quickly. Even worked me to resolve some confusion regarding Authorize.Net filter/validation settings.

Great Module, Great Support

After evaluating about 10 of these Authorize.Net CIM modules, I decided on Paradox Lab's module. I emailed Paradox ahead of purchasing and they promptly answered all of my questions. During development and testing, they quickly answered additional questions and even helped as much as they could on troubleshooting compatibility with a third-party fraud module. Last, they even went as far as incorporating a small change into a release based on our feedback. Great module, competent developer and great support.

It's worth noting that some other modules require ionCube and parts of the source are encoded. As well, other modules sometimes don't support online refunds with the CIM payment method. Paradox Lab's module is fully open, does not require ionCube and supports all of the necessary CIM functionality for our usage.

Excellent update!

I bought this a year ago and finally got around to getting an updated version. Customer support was quick providing updated extension and the upgrade went without a hitch. I'm also using the Xtento Bulk Processing extension along side with the extension and it does not have trouble.

Great Extension that is extremely easy to install!

I needed this extension for the integration of CIM and Magento. I called and talked with support for a brief 3-5 minutes to make sure I understood that this would do what I needed. Purchased the extension and had it installed and taking payments in 15 minutes! I am not a webmaster, more of a webpeasant boy.

Great service, extension is extremely easy to use and interfaces well with FireCheckout, one page checkout.

As for the module itself, it does everything as expected, and we haven't run into any issues.

I'm a developer myself, the code is well written and easy to follow.

Good people. So far it is working good.
