What are the best practices for swiping a card?

If you notice you have to swipe multiple times or that the card reader isn't reading the card, you may need to adjust the way you swipe a card.  

Possible reasons for missed swipes include swiping at an angle, and swiping too slowly or too quickly. The best swipe is with the card inserted fully into the reader, without an angle, and swiped through at a moderate, consistent speed.
