Help with DRS Ardent credit services

Good evening guys I’m after a little help please. I’ve posted a few times in the motoring forum and had some great advice from there.

Now the car finance company has instructed debt collectors to try and recover an alleged outstanding balance related to a voluntary termination. This section may be more appropriate for me to ask advice related to the debt side. I just want to know the best way to play things please? Do I have to reply to these guys or Can I comfortably ignore them? Is this…

[ Politics ] Open Question : Do you give Bill Maher credit? I will give Bill Maher credit on this, he is calling it out regardless of his bias.?

Maher has always been a huge liberal but I will give him credit on this, he is calling it out regardless of his bias. One of the few people in media that didnt let his bias get in the way of the facts. “Real Time” host Bill Maher slammed Hunter Biden’s business ties to Ukraine, suggesting MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow would be talking about it if it were one of President Trump’s children. “The more I read about this- no, I don’t think he was doing something terrible in Ukraine, but it’s just- why can’t politicians tell their f—–‘ kids, ‘Get a job, get a godd–n job!”” Maher told the panel. “This kid was paid $ 600,000 because his name is Biden by a gas company in Ukraine, this super-corrupt country that just had a revolution to get rid of corruption. It just looks bad.’ “And if Don Jr. did it, it would be all Rachel Maddow was talking about’

What information about me do online stores get via my credit card?

I found the exact same question about physical stores: What information about me do stores get via my credit card?

Though I am interested in online stores! Are there big difference between physical and digital?

What information do merchants get about me (or my credit card) from this transaction? For example I know about BIN and AVS what else can they find out? What other APIs do they talk to,…

This is probably very specific for different countries are there any standards though, if not I am the most interested about Europe transactions cross crountries (e.g. France->UK, UK->Hungary,…) in this case. If you only know about US specific feel free to post it as well though maybe we can collect a good collection of info on this!

Thanks a lot for your info!

Do Ingenico credit card readers store PII or Merchant data? [on hold]

One of my peers came to me in regards to the card readers we use. Specifically, an Ingenico iPP320.

He asked “Do these store any data that requires us to destroy the storage medium” and I honestly don’t know.

Obviously they have to have some way of knowing what organization we are, but what other data is on these things? How do you guys normally offboard these types of devices?

I tried looking for articles, support documentation from the company, and emailing their support, but haven’t found any answers.

Credit Card Creation for Member ID

Security Geniuses,

I have a bit of a unique application. I’m trying to create fancy ID cards for a local membership.

The application is a little unique: It’s a cocktail club, and they’re doing some cool things with the front of house and service structuring. All that to say, they want to use some nice brass magstripe cards for members IDs, but they’d like to further integrate them into their POS, which is currently Square for Restaurants.

I’ve talked to them about RFID, and about magstripes, but I’m further not entirely familiar myself with what the POS system looks at from a credit card stripe, which stripe the data is lives on, how it’s encoded past the reader, etc.

I’ve got a reader/encoder that I can use to read data, but I’m not seeing consistency between the selection of cards I have in front of me. I have some work to do on the interpreting side, I suppose. Thankful for any tips or experiences you guys have had. Of course, if I’ve posted this inquiry in the wrong spot, I’m fine with it being moved and apologize in advance (or the present?).


Credit Card input format

Somewhere, in one of the Usability books I read ( probably Donald Norman ), there was a suggestion that the normal format for entering credit cards was wrong. The usual format is 16 characters in a long string. However, the way that we read then and they are printed on the card is 4 groups of 4. The argument is – and I completely agree with it – that entering the card in 4 lots of 4 would be much easier, both to enter and to verify for the user.

This only needs a little bit of coding to include the dashes in the entered data, and ignore them in the validation. Or to have 4 boxes with focus going to the next one. It is not a complex coding issue. So why does no-one seem to do it? Why is the standard box format so prevelant still?

This comes out of having just tried to use my credit card, and make a mistake, and then had to search through the whole lot to identify the mistakes – tedious, and something that would be much easier if it was properly divided.

Edit: To add some points from comments. I think the proper implementation would need to be worked out – 4 boxes of autoinserted dashes may not work, or may need to be tweaked. So it is not saying xxx is the right approach, but that the current approach does have its own set of problems.

Splitting credit card number fields into four different inputs

I have previously been using 4 fields for the credit card number, splitting up each set of 4 numbers to make it easier to enter.

I am now thinking about having one field, which inserts spaces after every set of numbers instead:

single field with spaces between groups of four digits, and old field with four separate boxes

For the one with 4 fields, the cursor jumps to the next field automatically.

Which format is preferred? Or are there any other better alternatives?

I only accept Visa, Mastercard and Discovery, with 16 and 17 digits.
