VT Swipe Requirements

Is there a certain type of card swiper that must be used?

I see keyboard emulators, and HID(?) types.

Which do I need to get. I would prefer not to go to Dell.

Also, I understand that because it uses an ActiveX control you have to use Internet Explorer?

If you are using Internet Explorer 8 take note. We’ll upgrade our communities in July and if you are using IE8 you won’t have a fully functional experience. Please upgrade your browser to Internet Explorer 9, 10 or 11. There will be no changes to your community experience if you are using IE 9, 10, 11, Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
