3D Secure (3DS) is an XML-based protocol used as an added layer of security for online credit and debit card transactions.
Developed by Visa and designed to combat online credit card fraud, services based on this protocol have also been adopted
by MasterCard, under the name MasterCard SecureCode. Cardholders register their card(s) for Verify by Visa® or MasterCard SecureCode® with their card issuing bank directly. This additional password is then used to validate the cardholders identity whenever they make a purchase on a participating site. This ID validation is not the card pin and is in addition to the standard address and CVV2/CVC2 (last three digits on back of card) verification process that will be required. All payment security checks and verifications are carried out by our Payment Service Providers, Sage Pay and PayPal with the card issuing bank.
