3D Secure - for your benefit and security.
You will have seen that the volume of internet trade is growing at a phenomenal rate; however some criminal elements are taking advantage of this growth to target your website with stolen card details. It is now more vital than ever, for you as a customer, to protect your transaction against this increased risk of fraud.
Created by the card payments industry and made compulsory from 2010, 3-D Secure is a security feature which ensures that payments using certain credit and debit cards are authenticated by the card holder with their bank at the time of the transaction with Green Bear UK Limited.
3-D Secure is the common name for the technology behind MasterCard SecureCode (MSC) and Verified by Visa (VbV). If your card is enrolled with 3-D Secure, during the payment flow you will be prompted by your bank to enter a password and secure details to verify that the transaction is authorised by you, the card owner before completion. Green Bear has been implementing 3D Secure since January 2009 for the protection and security of its customers
Example of 3D secure in both formats*:
You'll need to provide your Name, Date of birth, Credit card number/expiry date and csv security code and a valid email address. If you have not registered with your bank, you will be able to do so at the same time and then proceed to finalise your payment. Details will be sent to your email address that is on record with your bank.
*Please be aware that the format of the 3D secure password may vary between banks.
