How does 3D Secure work?
3D Secure is named by Visa: Verified by Visa , and by Mastercard: MasterCard SecureCode. It deals with a banking process which ensures a high level of security for online payments. The aim of 3D Secure is to protect merchants against fraud by guaranteeing the cardholder's identity.
Both the merchant and the cardholder are enrolled in the 3D Secure program by their respective banks.
The 3D Secure process implies one more step when the customer pays: the cardholder's authentication. This extra step comes just after the customer filled in his card details.
The customer is redirected to his bank's 3D Secure page and asked for one personal and independent information. The kind of information is specific to each bank. Most of the time, a text message with a unique code is sent to the cardholder. The latter gives this code on the bank's secured page in order to definitely confirm the payment.
