In case of auto debit payment, first payment will be taken as one time payment irrespective of the plan whether it includes trial period or not. Date of second recurrence will be set as subscription start date in authorize.net website for respected plan.

Trial Period + Authorize.NET

In Authorize.NET, you must keep same unit for trial period and billing cycle. (For example if your billing cycle is for 1 month, then you are allowed to set trial period in months only.)

But with ARMember plugin, you can override this limitation. You are allowed to keep Trial Period in Days and Billing Cycle in months in ARMember. (In short, there is no more requirement to set same unit for trial period as billing cycle while using this plugin.)

Authorize.net does not support billing cycle less than 7 Days. Also, you can not set “Year” in billing cycle, as it is not supported in authorize.net.

ARMember payment gateways authorize.net

In case of any error at setup form you may display actual error returned from Authorize.Net payment gateway by enabling Display actual error returned from payment gateway switch as you can see in screen-shot.
