3D Secure

Piraeus Bank offers to e-Shops the Verified-by-Visa and MasterCard Secure Code services by Visa and MasterCard.

Authentication of payment cardholders

Piraeus Bank provides the Verified-by-Visa and MasterCard Secure Code services, which have been designed based on the 3D-Secure protocol. These services authenticate payment cardholders (credit, debit or prepaid cards) when performing transactions on your e-Shop. With this additional level of security, 3D-Secure services further shield your business from fraud transactions and the risk they entail.

Authentication makes online shopping more secure for your business and your customers, by creating a secure e-commerce channel.

The online authentication process is instantaneous and is activated every time a Visa card or MasterCard is used on your e-Shop, before the request for the approval to charge the card.
