Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode

What is it?

3-D Secure is a new security programme which gives you enhanced protection when making payments online.

Verified by Visa / MasterCard SecureCode

These are security programmes created by the major card suppliers (Visa and MasterCard). They allow you to create your own personal password, known only to you, for use as an extra security measure each time you use your Visa or MasterCard payment card to make a future payment online.

How does it work?

You only need to register with Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode once to create your password for your credit / debit card. Then whenever you make a payment online using your card you will be asked to enter this password as additional validation before the payment is confirmed.

What do I need to do to register?

To register for Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode you need to use the links shown at the bottom of this page. After entering your card and personal details you will then be asked to create a personal password which will be used to authenticate future payments made online with your card. The details you enter in this process will be submitted to your card issuer over a secure link; this information will not be held, viewed or made known to Emson Haig.

What if I am already registered?

If you have already registered you just need to enter your personal Visa or MasterCard SecureCode password as instructed.

Which cards are checked for 3D Secure?

All major debit and credit cards, including Maestro are checked for participation within 3D Secure.

If I haven't enrolled can I still make a payment?

Yes you can but unfortunately we will have to refund your payment to you because our company policy requires this additional level of protection, for your benefit as well as ours.

Any other questions?

If you have any questions regarding this process please contact the bank that issued your card. For further information or to sign up to 3D Secure please use the links below:
