    USB Card Swipe in keyboard emulation


      Does anybody have some insight as to what conditions have to be met for card track data to be sent correctly through Filemaker 12. We are using Filemaker as a POS amongst other things, and we added card swipers to accept credit cards using Authorize.net. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way to Chase Paymentech (Card Processor) the information is being altered, not picked up, or something missing in scripting. This is causing all swipes to be miss interpreted as Manually Entered, causing higher fees, so far, in the neighborhood of $10,000 Any ideas or suggestions, so far only fingerpointing, which isn't healthy or helping.

          Hi there, Mr. Wes,


          Are you parsing the cardswipe data to send x_track1 or x_track2 in the string sent to the payment gateway? Sending the unparsed cardswipe string will result in the higher fees.
