What is 3-D secure?

3D secure is a procedure to increase the security of credit card transactions. The goals are to reduce credit card fraud and protect all parties involved. 

How it works

After the buyer enters his credit card number, a connection is established with the card issuer so that the buyer can confirm his identity with a code (two-factor authentication). After correct authentication, the credit card payment is executed.
