From Waves in Motion:
Process credit cards or electronic checks right from within your FileMaker solutions. You can enhance your solutions by providing a direct connection to the trillion-dollar industry of electronic transactions. Simply by adding one field and one relationship, developers are able to add credit card authorization to any solution. This is a revolutionary new "black-box" method of integration that saves developers time and gives them added reliability.
The eAuthorize 5.2 plug-in extends the functionality of FileMaker Pro by providing a method to process credit card transactions and electronic checks directly from your FileMaker Solution. eAuthorize 5.2 connects to your online payment gateway to process your payments instantly and securely.
Direct integration of your payment processing provides a significant advantage when designing a FileMaker Pro solution that must handle payments, sales, inventory, order fulfillment, etc. With eAuthorize 5.2 you can pass the customer's payment information to the payment gateway and receive an immediate authorization response. This response will indicate if the transaction was accepted or declined.
As a result, a FileMaker Pro solution with the eAuthorize 5.2 plug-in can be designed to act according to the responses from the real-time transactions. With the push of a button, an order can automatically go into processing the moment after payment is taken.
