The secure CC vault is a special feature of Clock PMS which validates the credit card details guests enter when they book online or when they pay through the hotel app and stores them on a top security Clock server. No unauthorized users can access the data, which is deleted automatically at the end of the booking lifecycle.

* Visa has raised the security requirements concerning software service providers handling credit card payments. As a result, we are undergoing the highest PCI DSS Level 1 certification. As soon as we receive this certification, the asterisk-marked services from the table above will once again be available. We hope the certification process will very soon be completed, as the anticipated certification term is 1 August 2017.
** In the meantime, you can use the MOTO Virtual Terminal to perform the double-asterisk-marked operations.
