The 'require password on all transactions' feature will work only with ShopSite version 6 or greater. In early versions of ShopSite, Authorize.net only required the password be used only on settlement transactions (not the authorization transactions) so ShopSite did not send it on the authorization transactions made from the shopping cart. In ShopSite version 6 the 'require password on all transactions' option was added as an extra security measure; however newer versions of ShopSite utilize an API username and a secure "Transaction Key" by default for even a greater level of security.

If you have a version older than Shopsite version 6, you should not enable this feature in your Authorize.net account.
