Automatically entering credit/debit card information into internet web forms

    A program is disclosed that automatically enters credit/debit card information into internet web forms. This should be implemented as a web browser plug-in.

    When an internet web form requires credit/debit card information, this application would take over and prompt the user to slide the credit/debit card through a reader attached to the PC. The application would then take the data sent in from the reader and automatically fill in the proper fields (card number, expiration date, etc.) of the internet web form.

    The developer of the internet web site would have to prompt the user to determine if they have a credit/debit card reader. If they answer yes, the application would prompt them to slide the card through the reader and populate the fields.
