Credit Card Swipers

Using a Card Swiper

On pages that accept a credit card number you will see a Swipe card button.

Click Swipe card to use an external USB card reader.


A popup Swipe credit card window will appear prompting you to swipe the card through the reader.

Swipe the card through the reader.


If the swipe is successful, then the window will close, and the card number and expiration date will appear.

CVC Check

When using a credit card reader or swiper, only the credit card number and expiration date are read. The Card Verification Code (CVC, or CCV), found on the back of most credit cards, is not present on the magnetic strip, so it is not available by swiping the card.

You can either type the CVC security code in manually or you can Checkout Payment Options to make the CVC security code optional.
