Financial security is always the most important aspect of a functioning payment process. To ensure the highest levels of security for our consumers and merchants we have chosen to use cash management services provided by an FDIC insured bank based within the United States. They boast cutting edge cash management technology and the ability to allow our merchants individual access into their bank web site. This makes it easy to monitor accruing funds and transactions.
The eLayaway system is one of the most fraud resistant payment systems available. The process of paying over time before item delivery does not work well when a criminal is trying to quickly make a purchase, take delivery and disappear. The eLayaway system also verifies the identity of every consumer who makes a purchase through the system or changes important account information. This makes an individual accountable if they decide to use another person’s banking information to fund a transaction or switch important data. The eLayaway system does not allow transfers of money between any two or more accounts. This decision was made to eliminate internal network theft. The management of eLayaway works hard to make sure we are operating the most fraud resistant payment system on the Internet.
eLayaway takes pride in protecting the information of our merchants and consumers. The information that is collected is stored safely in our database and is never shared with any third party companies.
