Anyone done any integration with Magtek iDynamo?

Have anyone done any integration with Magtek iDynamo? It's an iOS credit card swiper. I would like to know if it is possible at all with (I am currently not a customer, but am considering).


iDynamo is not a keyboard-emulation reader. It uses DUPKT key management. I am new to credit card processing in general, so any help is greatly appreciated!!!

I am working on an integration right now for our shopping cart  It is a fairly involved process since the Idynamo encrpyts the cc data right at the read head.  From what I have been told, you must aquire an Idynamo that is configured to communicate with your Gateway (not but the company that actually processes your credit cards), it is usually easiest to get this from the Gateway.


Is there any news on supporting the MagTek iDynamo? I have an app where we need that sort of durable swipe device.

If you are interfacing with, you have to use an device. If you are keyed to a merchant, you can only communicate directly with that merchant - will not accept your encrypted track data. I don't know what the procedure would be for getting devices, though. If anyone finds out, please post, because a number of people, including myself, want to know.
