Credit Card Swiping

Our Sell Tickets tool processes credit cards via the Brown Paper Tickets credit card processor and some Custom Merchant Accounts.

When processing cards, you have the option to either manually enter in the 15-16 digit number and information, or use a keyboard emulating, USB connecting swiping mechanism.

We send out the MagTek model 21040108, USB Mini Swipe Magnetic Strip Credit Card Reader for our rentals.

MagTek & Sell Tickets Tips

Be sure to swipe the credit card's magnetic strip on the proper side. Sometimes it helps to turn the swiper around and try again from the other direction.
