Avoid a Head Ache
Try  credit cards  with  expire  dates of  12/99 and later.  Some systems
still have  problems with this.  You might as well be sure if the problem
hits it is  beyond your  site - - out on the network on its way to the
owning bank.

There  was a produce  shop  that had its system go flat down every time
such a credit/debit card was processed.  They won the court case & law suit.

Happy Holiday Season
