FM Credit Card

Automate Credit Card Transactions
Automate your credit card transactions in FileMaker and allow your users to easily process any credit card transaction. There is no limit to how many transactions you can process! Functions include authorize and capture sales, refunds and credits, voids, and raw posts.

Receive Approval Codes
The plug-in returns the approval codes for each transaction confirming if it successfully processed, if it was declined or if it returned any errors.

3 Different Gateways
Choose from 3 different gateways to meet all your needs. Currently the plug-in supports:
- Authorize.Net
- PayPal*
- Authorize.Net Emulator
* Please note, the plugin ONLY works with the basic PayPal Merchant Account.

Build Custom Posts
Advanced functionality allows for custom posts to be built so you can implement additional services offered by your gateway such as processing of eChecks, Tele-Checks, Automated Clearing Houses (ACH) and PINless debit transactions.

Secure and SSL Encrypted
We use industry leading SSL encryption so all credit card transactions from FileMaker Pro are secure and safe.

Additional Server-Side Features:
