The question of how to enable credit card swipe readers within Sage 100 ERP 2013 recently was asked in my 90 Minds group. As you may know one of the big features of the Sage Exchange integration with Sage 100 ERP 2013 is the ability to swipe credit cards natively through the software.
This swiping generally also allows your company to receive lower rates because having a physical credit card present lowers the possibility of charge fraud
In order to get the swiping feature to work in Sage 100 ERP 2013 you must follow two steps (possibly a third if you need updated card swipe drivers):
1. Within your Sage Exchange program (which should be minimized in the task bar and activated by a right click and clicking settings) enable the Magensa Card Swipe listed under Credit Card Devices.
Your Sage Exchange interface will reboot an you will then be able to swipe credit cards in your Sage 100 ERP Sales Order module.
PS – A good source for credit card swipers as recommended by my 90 Minds members is ID Innovations – http://idinnovations.com/
