Card Verification Settings

Initially card address was made mandatory in Zoho Books. This was initiated by us to avoid confusions with respect to various payment gateways as different payment gateways have different validations. But now you are given that option to decide on whether the card address needs to be shown or not.

Depending on your choice of gateway you can enable the necessary fields of the card address to be shown or to be made mandatory by making the preferences in Card Verification Settings.

Kindly follow the steps below to make card address related changes:

Zoho Service Communication (ZSC) Key

Zoho provides numerous world class apps in addition to Zoho Books, such as Zoho CRM, Zoho Invoice, etc. If you have a Zoho CRM account and would like to integrate with your Zoho Books or Zoho Invoice account, you may use this ZSC key to do so. The ZSC Key is a unique key used to communicate between these apps.

Adding Users

When cards are used for payment, the payer’s card information will be encrypted and passed to the payement gateway. After the payment is processed and confirmed, the last 4 digits of the card along with the month and year of expiry are stored in the payment details section of Zoho Books.
