|2/6/03||ePowerCart w/ Authorize Net users must upgrade||Authorize Net has disabled the Weblink 2.0 method that was originally|
built into ePowerCart, and will be disabling Weblink 3.0 shortly.
A new registered version of ePowerCart is available which
uses Authorize Net's SIM method.
If you have registered Webdata Classic with the ePowerCart module,
and you use Authorize Net as your payment service, please contact
Webteacher Software right away to obtain the updated version.
The SIM method is almost the same
as Weblink (pass the amount and description on to https://secure.authorize.net
and complete the order on their secure server), however it requires
a "fingerprint" value, which is an encrypted concatonation of the
userid, timestamp, and a special "transaction code" which you will need
to get from Authorize Net's "settings" page.
Webdata Pro has the new Authorize Net schema built into version 1.52h.
