Credit card processing

The new Sphere payment processing module by @brady.miller looks pretty cool, though I’m not familiar with the TrustCommerce platform.

Does anyone know if that will work with an OpenEMR cloud deployment plus a card reader, or will it require the reader and the EMR instance to be on the same LAN (like the current Stripe integration requires)?

Hi @snailwell , planning to have support for this feature in the next patch (hopefully in 2 more weeks). Still need to do an update on development side of things that will take about a week or so before can proceed with patch and then folks should be able to onboard with the module at that point.

The reader (I tested with; there are lots of options with Sphere) uses a keyboard usb driver (so it basically works on any OS without any special drivers) which is connected to the user’s computer via usb. You basically select the input test field in the window, use the reader, and then click pay. so, it does not need to be connected to the EMR instance server at all.
