What is the difference between Authorize.net AIM and SIM?

AIM (Advanced Integration Method) and SIM differ in a few ways.

AIM can be used on your own website, SIM is processed on Authorize.net, ensuring a secure process (important for PCI compliance). AIM can be accessed via mobile, SIM can not. For AIM, a SSL is required. For SIM, it is not (because the processing is handled externally on Authorize.net). At a basic level, AIM offers more control, SIM offers more security. For more on these choices, see Authorize.net’s comparison. 

AIM is offered standard as part of WP e-Commerce Gold Cart.
