What is 3D Secure Fraud Prevention?

3D Secure is a protocol founded by VISA under the brand name ‘Verified by VISA’ later credit card issuers MasterCard and AmericanExpress joined this 3D Secure protocol to reduce fraud and offer more security for online credit cards transactions.

It has 3 layers (domains)  first you have the card issuer, then you have the merchant, and last you have 3DS which validates every transaction with a Pincode.


How does 3D Secure work?

When a customer doing an online purchase and pays via credit card, they will be automatically redirected to a secure 3D page, here they need to fill in a password, after this, your payment will be approved by the credit card issuer.

Credit Card Issuers that supports 3D Secure:
  • MASTERCARD  (MasterCard SecureCode)
  • VISA  ( Verified by Visa)
  • AMERICAN EXPRESS (Discover ProtectBuy)
  • DINERS CLUB (SafeKey)
