3d Secure payment
Payments made by debit / credit card over the Internet have used 3D-SECURE. Additional information known to the bank and the cardholder is requested during a transaction. This helps to strengthen the authentication of its customers for payments on the internet.This authentication verifies that the card is being used by its legitimate owner.
Specifically, when making a payment on a retail website with the "MasterCard Secure Code" and "Verified by Visa" logos, a new window appears asking for personal information of the payer. This may be the birth date of the card holder or a secret code depending on the internet user’s bank (1). This data entry control verifies that the internet user making the payment is the person associated with the card used.
This authentication is mandatory and any refusal to enter this personal information or any mis-typing of this personal information of the payer will result in cancellation of the transaction.
