Card swiper acted like it would read and nothing would happen. I have an old card swiper that is working, so I know it is not my computer or terminal. If there is specific software that needs to go with these swipers, that should be stated and or included with the swipers. They came in bubble wrap, not marking of manufacturer or any instructions.
I received this product a few months back and I just now opened and tried to use them. It does not read a credit card in any format that a merchant service provider can understand software can understand. What is this thing intended to do? I wish I had read the reviews and I would not have purchased. Any ways to solve this problem, apparently they can't be returned.gszozda on Feb 16, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The specs say "DC5V+/-5". "DC5V" is something I understand but what does the "+/-5" indicate?

This is a reader only. It will only read the information from a magnetic swipe card.

Only the model is listed. What brand is this? What company is listed on the top sticker? The tile only lists this product as a reader but the details says reader/writer. Is this really a writer. Thanks. on Aug 7, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
We are unable to disclose the manufacturer of some of our products. However, we stand behind every product we sell. When necessary, we can contact suppliers if a product issue arises. The product page does state that this is a reader/writer, but we will try to verify that information with the manufacturer and hope to have an answer as soon as possible.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 8, 2012
