How To Have Test Environment For Processing Payments?

Recommended Posts

My billing.php does not work, as the result is just a button that says processing. This is has to be the most frustrating coding I have ever done, its one thing finding a bug and reading about it, but there is no connection between the post method and final, there seems to be a loophole in my server.

The possible scenarios could be:
AuthorizeNet doesnt work, then which should I use?


The PHP built in server on PHPStorm is not using HTTP and the connection is never established (it uses a port on localhost)


In addition, why should I have to put in all the form data each time I do a test?
How do I create static variables instead of....


<?php create_form_input('cc_exp_year', 'select', $billing_errors); ?>


So here is my connections for the server
PHPStorm using built in server

define('BASE_URI', 'C:/xampp/htdocs/pay/coffeeShop/');
define('BASE_URL', 'localhost:8282/');
define('MYSQL', BASE_URI . 'mysql.inc.php');



Having a form of billing that loks like

if (!isset($_SESSION['customer_id'])) { // Redirect the user.
// $location = 'https://' . BASE_URL . 'checkout.php';
$location = '' . BASE_URL . 'checkout.php';
header("Location: $location");

// Require the database connection:

// Validate the billing form...

// For storing errors:
$billing_errors = array();

// Check for a form submission:



if (isset($order_id, $order_total)) {

// Make the request to the payment gateway:
define('API_LOGIN_ID', '***' );
define('TRANSACTION_KEY', '***' );
$aim = new AuthorizeNetAIM(API_LOGIN_ID, TRANSACTION_KEY);

// Are we testing?

// Set the amount (in dollars):
$aim->amount = $order_total/100;




if ($response->approved) {

// Add the transaction info to the session:
$_SESSION['response_code'] = $response->response_code;

// Redirect to the next page:
$location = '' . BASE_URL . 'final.php';
header("Location: $location");





Ultimately, looking to know what makes the processing take so long, and debugging strategies, thanks.

Sorry for the delayed reply! I can't quite tell exactly what you're asking as you seem to be expressing many frustrations. I'm not an expert on PHPStorm, so I can't answer anything there, although it is possible PHPStorm is making it more complicated. I think the main thread here is problems testing Authorize.net locally. If you could confirm that, and if you're still having the same problem, that'd be great. Thanks!
