3D Secure/Payer Authentication For Credit Card Transactions

What is 3D Secure / Payer Authentication?

Your bank identifies you by your OTP or previously selected PIN / Password and therefore knows it’s you shopping online with your credit card. In doing so, no fraudulent transactions can be made if your card has been lost or stolen – giving you more control of your shopping experience. There are no extra costs involved. You can shop in total confidence that your credit card details are safe and secure.
