Magento CIM Extension

Magento Authorize.Net’s Customer Information Manager (CIM) allows you to create and save customer profiles and credit cards on Authorize.Net’s secure payment gateway servers for later use.

This gives returning customers the convenience of not needing to re-enter payment information each time they purchase.

How Authorize.Net Magento CIM Extension Works

Saving Credit Card information During Checkout

When a customer makes their first purchase using the Authorize.Net CIM payment gateway, they are given a form to enter credit card information.

If customers choose to store the credit card information, the next time they make a purchase they can either enter a new card or choose the one they used previously.

Managing Saved Credit Cards Information

If customers no longer want to keep a credit card on file, there is a section added to 'My Account' where they can view, edit, and delete their stored credit cards.
