3D Secure - Verified By Visa and MasterCard SecureCode :

Payment by SSL secure credit card with e-Transactions from Crédit Agricole :

Our payment module uses the 3D Secure protection system, deployed under the trade names Verified By Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. The principle of the 3D Secure system consists in asking the buyer, in addition to his usual banking data (CB number, expiry date, cryptogram), for a unique confidential code, independent of the card, in order to ensure that the buyer is indeed the holder of the payment card. This code is communicated via SMS or email by your bank with each new transaction.

Thanks to a confidential code: secure your purchases on the Internet

Intended for VISA, MasterCard and Maestro cardholders, this service, which is completely free of charge, protects you against any fraudulent use of your bank card on merchant sites displaying the "3D Secure", "MasterCard SecureCode™" or "Verified by VISA™" logo.

More and more e-commerce sites are offering their customers the option of paying for their purchases using the 3D Secure system, an additional security feature for Internet payments.

Since October 2008, banks and some online merchants have adopted the 3D Secure system for payments made over the Internet. This device, called Verified by Visa at Visa and SecureCode at MasterCard, aims to secure transactions by authenticating cardholders and thus preventing their fraudulent use.

How does it work ?

The 3D Secure system allows you to ask the buyer for additional information before validating the payment. A person who steals your card or copies the information from your card cannot make purchases from merchants using 3D Secure because they cannot know this additional information.

How to proceed ?

All you have to do is register when you buy online on a merchant site displaying the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode logos. Once you have completed the order form with your credit card number, expiry date and security code (three-digit number on the back of the card), you will be directed to your bank's website, where you will be asked for additional personal information to identify you as the cardholder. Each bank has set up a means of identification: account number, date of birth, code deduced from a personal key card provided by the bank, answer to a personal question among those proposed in a drop-down list, password…

What is SecureCode™ or "Verified by VISA"™ ?

This confidential code, known only to you, can only be used for your Internet purchases. It is composed of 6 to 10 characters, containing at least one letter and one number. Remember, you will be asked for each payment transaction on a participating merchant site. In case you forget, a very personal question-answer will allow you to recreate a new confidential code.

Security by a single-use code

However, as some of these means of identification are relatively easy to find (e. g. date of birth), more and more banks are now adding a unique code to this device: once identified, you receive a confidential code by SMS on your mobile phone, via a voice server if it is a fixed phone, or an electronic box. Then simply enter this code, composed of 6 to 10 characters mixing letters and numbers, and validate your purchase. You will receive a one-time use code for each purchase made on the affiliated merchant sites.
