Can I use a credit card processing machine on Ooma

Post by gnjcampbell » Thu Oct 29, 2009 7:00 pm

I just installed my Ooma Telo today and it seems to be working great!

I have a small home office and tried sending a fax dialing the *99 prefix and it worked just fine.

I have a credit card processing machine and tried it, but it wouldn't go through. Can I get it to work on Ooma?

I only process 2-3 credit cards per month, so I guess it's really not a big deal to just take the machine to my neighbors and use their land line to process the cards, but it would be nicer just to do it at home.

Any ideas if I can make it work?

What baud rate does the credit card processing machine use? If it's more than 9600 baud, try reducing it to 9600. The *99 pause prefix is required for it to work.
