As part of overall solution we are implementing cash desk
functionality. One of the requirements is to be able to interface with
credit card reader to get credit card details and pass this information
to external processing agency.
We have developed interface with external processing agency which sends credit card details and gets back authorization information. The only missing piece of this development is integration of the credit card reader to SAP. We have a credit card reader with pin pad (from VeriFone - model EverestPlus) that is configured and ready to send data. Per the card reader vendor the card reader is loaded with software and applications can retrieve data using multiple objects.
Right now we can key in the credit card number manually into SAP.
Can someone please provide guidelines on how to interface with an external card
reader to automatically get the card details into SAP when the card is
swiped. The client is planning to user VeriFone card reader, how do we
know which card reader is supported by SAP? Also, does SAP provide any
standard components to interface to a card reader?
Any help on this will be very much appreciated.
