Marketed as Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode, these programs ensure authentication of credit card holders with their issuing bank, eliminating merchant liability for the most common fraud-related charge-backs, and providing confidence to consumers that their cards cannot be used for fraudulent purchases.
Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode® is a that requires a unique password to make online purchases with your Visa or MasterCard at participating merchants. This extra security helps prevent any unauthorized online use of a card.
Verified by Visa works to confirm an online shopper’s identity in real time by requiring an additional password or other data to help ensure that no one but the cardholder can use his Visa card online.
When customers see the Verified by Visa symbol on your site at checkout, they can rest assured that their online transactions are protected by the brand they know and trust. And, even if the cardholder isn’t enrolled in the program or their issuer isn’t participating, the merchant is not liable for certain fraud-related chargebacks on Visa personal debit and credit card transactions.
Fast Charge allows merchants to integrate their choice of payer authentication applications into their shopping cart or web based application, and then process payer authenticated transactions through their existing payment gateway account to gain additional protection against chargebacks.
How does the payer authentication process work?
Consumers enroll their Visa or MasterCard credit cards in the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode programs at their issuing bank’s web site. During the enrollment, they choose a password to associate with their card. When they use that card at a merchant enabled for Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode, they are prompted by their issuing bank to ‘sign” for the purchase with their password.
