How to pass required phone field to

I've followed instructions found here, and through logging errors, have determined that is expecting a Phone field, but Phone isn't one of the fields in the Add-on settings. Is there any way to pass the Phone number field to

    As far as I know, the Phone field is NOT a required field for the AIM api. You can verify this yourself in the api guide -- Perhaps your AuthNet account has some additional fraud/security setting that requires it?

    That said, you can pass additional fields to AuthorizeNet, using a hook in your functions.php. See my post about it ( ) or the code snippet here:

  3. Thank you tex77. I ended up making the change on's end (Settings > Payment Form > Form Fields), so it was no longer requiring the phone field, and it worked properly.
