Can a user see a remote FileMaker page
Via FileMaker or a Web Browser? If you publish a database to the web, users with the correct browsers/versions can access the page.
and enter some payment processing details
what kind of "details". To process a financial transaction such as charging a credit card or debiting a debit card will require a plug in. But just recording data in the fields does not.
Thanks. Can you use IWP or web direct to publish to the web for this purpose ?
And what is this purpose? you never clarified exactly what you were trying to do.
It should be possible, but I've never tried to do it.
I have a client with Filemaker Pro installed on a network. Currently the entire network is Filemaker Pro 12 - but there are plans to install Filemaker Server 13. The system acts as CRM solution and they are trying to automate payments. The steps are :-
a) The client will log onto the system, and identify one of their customers who they need to invoice.
b) They will press a button in a portal containing outstanding invoices for that customer.
c) This will create an e-mail via either outlook or SMTP which will go to the customer.
d) In the email, there will be a link to a page in the Filemaker database. On the page, there will be fields for Credit Card Number etc.
e) The customer will enter these and press a button and his credit card will be charged.
I can do a)-d) easily - but e) is the one I am curious about. So I guess I would need a plug in ? Can you recommend one ?
e will require a plug in. But as I've already indicated, I've never had a project that required this. Thus I cannot recommend a specific plug in.
