3D Secure is the technical standard developed by Visa and MasterCard to combat online credit card fraud. It helps to prevent the unauthorised use of one's credit card with the use of a password that is only known to the credit card holder.
Visa has called their version Verify by Visa®, while MasterCard's is known as SecureCode®. Cardholders who have registered for Verify by Visa® or MasterCard's SecureCode® use their passwords to validate their identities whenever they make a purchase on a participating site. At the payment stage, cardholders will be prompted to key in their passwords if they have registered. Otherwise, they will be prompted to register before they check out. The Creative Store does not save any of your credit card or bank details throughout the entire payment process.
