Your Silent Post URL should be set up as your website URL with ?charitable- listener=authorize-net added to the end.

For example, if your website is https://example.com, your Silent Post URL should be set to https://example.com?charitable-listener=authorize-net

After saving your Silent Post URL, return to the Account page and click on MD5-Hash.

Add an MD5 Hash value. This can be anything you like, but you’ll need to make sure it exactly matches the MD5 Hash you set in your WordPress dashboard in the next step.

Next, you need to save your MD5 Hash value in your WordPress dashboard. Go to the Authorize.Net settings (Charitable > Settings > Payment Gateways > Authorize.Net) and enter the same MD5 Hash value you just entered in Authorize.Net.
