How do I obtain a card swipe reader to use with the BBMS Terminal?
Blackbaud does not recommend specific card swipe readers for use with Blackbaud Merchant Services Card Present Terminal nor does it provide them.
The Card Present section of the Blackbaud Merchant Services web portal can be used in conjunction with a USB magnetic stripe reader. The reader must be capable of USB Keyboard Emulation.Card swipe readers must be purchased or loaned from another provider.
If you have specific questions about your card reader or it is not working: Please contact the appropriate software vendor or IT professional for assistance with this process or issue, which is beyond Blackbaud's scope of support.
