Credit Card, Kiosk and Church

I am trying to build a kiosk for your church. I have all but one issue. We would like to have a "E-Give" kiosk for members who have for months been asking us to accept credit card. We have a merchant account and gateway already setup. We are using Ubuntu Linux

Our questions is how do we get the information from a credit card swipe to propagate the form.

The credit card swiper should hook up via USB or in older cases, via the keyboard port.  The device itself should have come with an SDK to interface with the reader.  If you're a programmer, it's a simple matter of making a function call to the SDK.  If you're not, then I am sure there are plenty of open source programs out there for the task (although I don't know of any).

A cc swiper usually emulates keyboard input.
A cc swiper can read to upto 3 tracks.
You should be intrested in track 2 as it contains the actual cc number you need to charge the customers account.

The swiper sends 'starting' and 'ending' code before and after the cc information.
example would be: æ11112222333344440000þ
where 1111222233334444 = the cc number
0000 the exp date

Hope this helps
