What is 3D Secure

3D Secure is an additional security layer for online credit and debit card transactions. It adds an authentication step to checkout; buyers verify their identity with their issuing bank before proceeding with the purchase. As a buyer, you might have encountered 3D Secure under one of the brand names used by the major card networks: MasterCard SecureCode, 3D Secure, Verified by Visa. Shopify Payments offers 3D Secure for Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards.

How 3D Secure works

3D Secure adds and additional step to the authentication of online payments. In order to complete a transaction using a credit or debit card, a cardholder must provide additional proof of identity, such as a password or other information known by the cardholder. Control over what details are needed to verify the cardholder, sits with the issuing bank for the card used.
