Online payments with iCard: as magic tricks
We have implemented 3D Secure 2.0 to increase the level of security of online payments with our cards and to guarantee you full protection of your data and money in the iCard digital wallet.
You can confirm every online transaction with iCard in two easy steps – now, it’s even faster than before. Enjoy secure online shopping on favourite websites and apps. Feel safe even when you shop from other online merchants that you have discovered recently and still do not fully trust their services. 3D Secure 2.0 is one of the most secure solutions for online shopping.
3D Secure 2.0 – the best protection for online transactions so far
3D Secure 2.0 adds another level of security to your payments made with iCard to online merchants participating in “Visa Secure” and “Mastercard ID Check” programmes that help prevent card-not-present fraud.
What requirements must be met with the 3D Secure protocol? For a secure checkout, you should go through an additional step to confirm the payment – this is the so-called Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). But here is the simple explanation: with this method, you can prove that the transactions to be made with your card are yours, and no one else is trying to use the funds in your account.
What has changed since we integrated the latest, improved version of the 3D Secure for all our cards? With 3D Secure 2.0, you don’t have to enter a 6-digit code received via SMS in the application or on the website where you are making a purchase. Instead, now you can confirm your payment even easier – by tapping a push notification from the iCard mobile app.
Our data from 2020 show that 3D Secure 2.0 not only reduces the risk of fraud but also increases the number of completed online orders. 3D Secure 2.0 is free of charge and applies automatically to all online payments with any of your iCard cards – both plastic and virtual debit cards. After you proceed to the order and enter the card details, you will receive a push to confirm the transaction in the iCard app.You do not need to do anything additional to take advantage of this method. It works for you already.
