  3. Expand the Order Processing or Sales Orders subfolder for that user.

Once you’re on this screen, Click EDIT on the top left and select the credit card processor. Keep in mind, Acctivate can only have 1 card processor enabled at one time. In this case, we want to enable Authorize.net. Select Authorize.net and click “Ok”.

After clicking “Ok”, the next window will require the API login ID and Transaction Key. You can get this information by following this article from Authorize.net’s support website: https://support.authorize.net/authkb/index?page=content&id=A405
