FileMaker Credit Card Integration

Hi, I'm Marc Larochelle from Productive Computing Thanks for taking a moment to watch this video

We're talking today about the FM Credit Card plugin Now, we created this plug-in several years ago and we created it for one special reason The reason is – customers would call us and they'd give us credit card information over the phone and we had to then go to a third-party program or an application to put that information in and it was never in the places we needed it We needed it in FileMaker That's where all our customers are stored

That's where our whole system is run from So we created the FM Credit Card plug-in Today we simply put in the credit card number click a button and it off it goes to AuthorizeNet for processing Now, we don't store the credit card information in FileMaker once it's processed, but we do store the fact that the transaction happened and it's all very convenient to do it by way of a plug-in and a button like that

So we're now in version 2 of the plug-in and we've got a lot of new features, a lot of cutting-edge features that I want to talk to you about today, and with a few more minutes of your time, let's go through those features now Thanks for watching! Okay, feature number one: FileMaker 16 compatibility Although technically we are compatible with earlier versions of FileMaker and we plan to be compatible with future versions, the important thing is that we are FileMaker 16 compatible both 64 and 32-bit on Windows and of course 64-bit on Macintosh Next feature, and this one's a cool one, because it goes along with the first one, FileMaker 16 Script Steps You might have caught a video that I did where we talked about all our plug-ins are now compatible with FileMaker 16 Script Steps, which means you can program your plug-in from the script level and not simply at the calc level

So it gives a unique and easier way to program your plug-ins Feature number three -Gateway Compatibility Fully compatible with AuthorizeNet, PayPal and we are also compatible with any Authorize Net emulation All right, feature number four – Transport Layer Security

That's fancy for heavy duty security We're compatible with version 1 through version 12 12 is the latest version here in late 2017

Feature number 5 – Card Present Transactions That means if you actually have a physical credit card in hand the FM Credit Card plug-in can process those transactions Feature number 6 – Server-Side Compatibility Perhaps one of my most favorite features, because this allows you to program your solution in such a way that you can perform those scripts on the server Meaning you can have FileMaker Go on your iPad or iPhone or iOS device or WebDirect or Custom Web Publishing all processing credit cards without actually having to have a physical plug-in installed on that local device or on the web

So, server-side compatibility is definitely a cool feature Feature number seven – Free Updates What do I mean by that? Well, the plug-in is purchased yearly You pay yearly for the plug-in, but with that you get quite a bit Any change in FileMaker version will be covered by that yearly plan

Any change in the operating system, be it Mac or Windows, will be covered in that plan Any change in the mandates that AuthorizeNet or PayPal should happen to invoke, either due to security or other ways they architect their systems, all of that will be covered So that one fee covers you for all of those potential incompatibilities and, of course, bug fixes along the way and any new features we come out with you'll be able to take advantage of those as well Save on merchant account fees

Okay, so we have a partnership with a company that can save you money on your merchant account fees and we say that, because we are using the same company We've been in business for 21 years We've had merchant accounts nearly the entire time We've negotiated several different merchant contracts over those years and up until recently when we formed a strategic alliance with this provider we are now in a position to confidently say we are saving a lot of money on our credit card merchant fees because of that So if you're interested we can put you in touch with this company and get you connected
