3-D Secure™ Payer Authentication Solutions
Our solution, cGate®SecureVerify, is a fully compliant payer authentication solution for Verified by Visa and MasterCard®SecureCode™ designed to protect international online merchants from fraudulent transactions.
Based on the Card Associations’ 3-D Secure™ technology, cGate®SecureVerify provides verification to the merchant that the buyer is the authorized owner of a card account, thereby reducing the number of unauthorized payments, resulting in fewer chargebacks.
First Atlantic Commerce can offer 3-D Secure™ as part of our gateway services or as a standalone service for other banks and gateways.
The advantage of 3-D Secure™ is that the merchant has the ability to identify the enrolment status of the cardholder and their issuing bank prior to the payment authorization. This allows merchants to predetermine chargeback liability shift rights on the pending transaction before it is authorized and settled.
Protecting Online Sales Income With Chargeback Liability Shift
Both Visa and MasterCard offer chargeback liability shift for fraud related chargebacks (otherwise known as “I didn’t do it chargebacks” when transactions are authenticated through Verified by Visa or MasterCard® SecureCode™.
In other words, if a customer claims that they did not make an online purchase or authorise it, the credit card issuer will now be liable instead of the merchant. In the past, paying for these chargebacks could really hurt small-time merchants, even putting some out of business if it happened too often. Now, these businesses have a way to protect themselves.
