    So Authorize.net is killing Hosted CIM Forms with their End of Life Announcement. March 30, 2018 we are out of luck.

    They say all we have to do is change the link to the forms.

    1. Is changing the URL all we really have to do in the the plugin?

    2. How does this affect rebills?

    Any input is much appreciated. Caesar what do you think?

    A 1000 Thanks...

    I just wanted to follow this up for anyone in the same boat.

    I just upgraded to the new Amember build 5.4. This switched my Authorize.net from Hosted CIM to Accept Customer.

    It looks awesome and my conversion rates have skyrocketed (up 42%). I would guess it is just a better experience for the customer.

    Yeah, have to say this one more time...

    If you are still using Hosted CIM, move to 5.4 immediately!

    My conversions have SERIOUSLY skyrocketed. The Accept Customer converts sooooo much better!

    You're leaving money on the table guys.

    @pjman - I am using AuthorizeCim and I have 5.4

    Is this the setup you are talking about? Can't tell if it's using the new form or not.

    I know lots of customers had issues with older form (wasn't very mobile friendly). I just wrote another topic about switching to an on-site order form, because I was looking for another option besides that form.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    "Is this the setup you are talking about?"

    Yes. If you're using 5.4, you have the new form.

    1. I'm not a big fan of worrying about PCI Compliance, so hosting my own form is not to my liking one bit. If I have zero cc data transferred on my site, my liability falls dramatically.

    2. I have tested hosted sales page, CIM sales page, and Custom Pages using Convert.com and 2 outside Conversion companies. Have to say a custom hosted sales page only slightly outperforms (7-10% better conversions) the basic CIM hosted version in about 30 tested versions.

    pjman - thanks for the reply. I feel better after seeing your tests. I know PCI compliance is a pain, which is why I've used hosted form up until this point.
