Carley Zimmerman, president of Zimmerman’s Toyland Inc., announced that Zimmerman’s Toyland Inc. has signed the eConnect merchant agreement which allows consumers shopping at [www.zimmermanstoys.com] to pay using eConnect’s Bank Eyes Only payment system.
EConnect’s eCashPad, which easily connects to most computers, is a secured payment-processing device designed to allow easy and secure transactions on the Internet. Through the use of a built-in magnetic card reader, the eCash Pad allows the use of a credit or ATM card for transactions over the Internet with eCashPad-enabled merchants.
“The eCashPad will allow our consumers and business affiliates to purchase in a secure card present environment. This will greatly reduce chargebacks and increase security. In addition, eConnect technology gives us a unique and value added edge in the eCommerce industry that we are looking forward to implementing,” stated Zimmerman. Zimmerman’s Toyland Inc. placed an order for delivery of 100 Zimmerman’s Toyland Inc. labeled eCashPads that will be freely distributed to its retail customers in the second quarter of 2001.
