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?
Welcome to the Community .
Virtual Terminal can be used by logging into your PayPal account, a swipe machine is not required. However, if you would like to purchase a swipe machine we recommend the USBSwiper.com. Please check out the website to learn more about it.
