3-D Secure, which is also known as 'Verified by Visa' or 'Mastercard SecureCode', is the online equivalent of entering your PIN when withdrawing cash from an ATM or making a purchase from a shop using a 'chip & PIN' terminal. The password that you create for your online purchases, is only known by you and your card issuing bank. This provides an additional layer of protection beyond just your card details.
If you've never used 'Verified by Visa' or 'Mastercard SecureCode' before, you will be required to go through a short online enrolment process before you can use your password to pay online. This can be done in one of two ways. You can either go to your card issuer’s website or you can just enrol as a part of the online payments process for this site. You will be automatically directed to your card issuer’s website where you will be able to enrol.
After enrolment with either 'Verified by Visa' or 'Mastercard SecureCode', you will be presented with an additional payment screen as a part of the online payment process that will prompt you for your password.
