                    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 ?

                     Thanks

                       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.
