EC-Zone is a virtual payment system designed for manually processing purchase card and credit card payments.
Use your existing system with no special hardware or software. All that is required is a web browser and internet access. EC-Zone is fully integrated into Payment WorkSuite, a high-performance payment platform that gives businesses of every size the ability to manage the increasing complexity of payment and data security requirements.
Use EC-Zone as a stand-alone application, or add other components of Payment WorkSuite — CardVault, EC-Linx and EC-Batch — to fit your needs, with confidence that the applications will work together seamlessly.
And, with EC-Zone, you have the power to add advanced features to automate recurring payments, tokenize bank account or other data, or creating email Secure PayLinks for simpler, safer payment from your buyers.
EC-Zone lets you streamline your PCI requirements by storing and managing card data in 3DSI's dedicated network and world-class data centers.

This is a superior practice over using a software-based payments system.
