Finding Your API Login

Note: This is only necessary for users currently using Authorize.net as their payment gateway.

The API (Application Program Interface) Login and Transaction Key are crucial pieces of data used to connect your SimplePart website to your chosen payment gateway. In order for your SimplePart website to connect with your virtual terminal or Authorize.net account, SimplePart will need the API Login and Transaction Key. 


1. Log in to your Authorize.net account

2. Go to General Security Settings.

2. Click “API Credentials & Keys”, this is where you will obtain your API Login and generate a Transaction Key. 

3. Obtain your API Login, answer your "Secret Question" you established when you created your account, and generate your Transaction Key. Any new Transaction Keys created should be provided to support@simplepart.com with the Dealer Name and URL. Doing this ensures your website has the most current credentials and customers are able to make credit card purchases.
