Online payments as we know them are changing. New EU legislation coming in on the 14th September 2019 tightens regulations and requirements around the handling of payments and card data. The new legislation will be known as PSD2.
At DigitalPrinting.co.uk, we take our customer’s security very seriously. That’s why we are implementing 3D Secure as of Wednesday 7th August 2019.
What is 3D Secure?
3D Secure – also referred to as 3D secure authentication or 3DS, is a fraud prevention measure that was originally launched by Visa back in 2001. It acts as an added layer of security when we’re taking card payments online for print orders.
It gives our customers a secure authentication step before they can purchase shopping online; ensuring that they’re using the correct card details to help protect against card payment fraud.
How does 3D secure authentication work?
You may have already come across 3D Secure Authentication before if you’ve paid for products online. When you are ready to pay for your print order, you’ll be redirected to your debit or credit card provider’s 3D secure page on their website.
On your card provider’s website, you’ll either be asked for a password (which you’ve set up already with your bank) or will need to enter an authentication code (which will be automatically sent to your confirmed mobile phone number).
After you have provided the correct security details, the payment will be approved by the card provider and you’ll be directed back to the DigitalPrinting.co.uk website, where you will receive confirmation that the payment has been successful.
We’re delighted that we can provide you with this extra level of security when it comes to shopping online with us. We always keep your card details safe, but by introducing 3D Secure fraud prevention, you can now rest assured knowing this extra security step is in place.
