    i have never set up a website that took credit cards before, and i am self taught most of my website programming knowledge.

    I am going through authorize.net, and what i need to do is take registrations for an event. I just want a simple checkout feature, that is all on the same page, no cart or anything, just type in the info, and click submit.

    The only thing i know how to do, is create a table, with name forms and all that. i need help getting the information from the form, to actually charging the cards.

    Can anyone help me with this? What information do you need to help me?

    Sample code from authorize.net

    // The following section provides an example of how to add line item details to

    // This sample code uses the CURL library for php to establish a connection,

    // library enabled in your php configuration
    $request = curl_init($post_url); // initiate curl object
    	curl_setopt($request, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0); // set to 0 to eliminate header info from response
    	curl_setopt($request, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); // Returns response data instead of TRUE(1)
    	curl_setopt($request, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_string); // use HTTP POST to send form data
    	curl_setopt($request, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE); // uncomment this line if you get no gateway response.
    	$post_response = curl_exec($request); // execute curl post and store results in $post_response
    	// additional options may be required depending upon your server configuration
    	// you can find documentation on curl options at http://www.php.net/curl_setopt
    curl_close ($request); // close curl object
    // This line takes the response and breaks it into an array using the specified delimiting character

    echo "</OL>\n";
    // individual elements of the array could be accessed to read certain response
    // fields.  For example, response_array[0] would return the Response Code,
    // response_array[2] would return the Response Reason Code.
    // for a list of response fields, please review the AIM Implementation Guide
    and this is card present that sends a transaction to the payment gateway

    require_once 'anet_php_sdk/AuthorizeNet.php'; // Make sure this path is correct.
    $transaction = new AuthorizeNetCP('YOUR_API_LOGIN_ID', 'YOUR_TRANSACTION_KEY');
    $transaction->amount = '9.99';
    $transaction->device_type = '4';
    $response = $transaction->authorizeAndCapture();
    if ($response->approved) {
      echo "<h1>Success! The test credit card has been charged!</h1>";
      echo "Transaction ID: " . $response->transaction_id;
    } else {
      echo $response->error_message;
    does this mean that when i make a form, for each field i choose id="x_card_num" for example? then the submit button linked to the card present somehow complete transaction?

    Have you found a solution to this, or do you still need help?

    not quite

    i haven't figured it out 100% yet, what i did so far is turned the site into a joomla site, then installed virtuemart as a checkout system, not sure how it will play out, but i will make it work somehow.
