Process Credit Cards and ACH in Excel!

Before you say "wha huh?", imagine an organization that keeps their customer list in Excel, and tracks orders in Excel.  Yes, there are companies that track their entire business in Excel.  Excel is an extremely powerful application that can be pushed very far. With the latest release of TRANSAX FlexPort , an Excel example is included.  Excel can be used as a virtual terminal, payment data for customers "tokenized" and those tokens can be stored within Excel, to be processed again later.   This creates a secure / PCI compliant configuration within Excel. Download FlexPort and take a look! More information on TRANSAX

TRANSAX FlexPort 6.3 released with Excel and CGI

TRANSAX has released a number of new technologies in the latest TRANSAX FlexPort release. These include a new Excel example. This allows Excel developers to easily integrate credit card and ACH processing within an Excel based application. Additionally, a new CGI (PERL based) integration example is included as well. Perhaps the most notable change in the latest offering is the addition of Magtek Magensafe support within FileMaker. This allows FileMaker developers to deliver a secure, PCI compliant solution with swipe support and end-to-end encryption. "You would be surprised how many Excel developers are out there who would like to include points of payment within their spreadsheet," explains Matthew J. Schwartz, CPP, President.

Swipe Credit Cards through FileMaker with End-to-End Encryption

MIAMI, FL. – July 16, 2012 – TRANSAX today announced the release of FleXport 6.3 . TRANSAX FleXport is a toolkit to help developers easily integrate points of payment into any application they are developing. This toolkit includes a free FileMaker plug-in. The latest version of the TRANSAX FileMaker Plug-In includes support for Magtek Magnesafe Swipe Readers . Magnesafe is a new technology that encrypts the credit card payload at the head. The payload is decrypted at the payment gateway. This allows a true end-to-end encryption, creating a secure PCI Compliant environment. “PCI Compliance is a major concern amongst merchants,” explains Matthew Schwartz, President of TRANSAX Gateway. “Security breaches leading to credit card theft can put a merchant out of business. Anything that can be done to reduce risk or bring the merchant’s processing out of scope, is a great benefit.” The TRANSAX FileMaker plug-in has no upfront or license costs and is easy to setup. TRANSAX will b

Process Credit Cards and ACH with PERL

PERL is one of the oldest web technology.  Since PERL has been introduced, many other development platforms have been introduced.  Yet PERL has remained a language that is used for website applications to this day.   To answer the needs of PERL developers trying to integrate points of payment into their application, we decided to add a PERL component to our FlexPort toolkit.
