3D Secure authentication
3-Domain Secure™ (3D Secure or 3DS) authentication provides an additional layer of security by protecting merchants against fraud when accepting card payments online. It requires shoppers to complete a verification step with the card issuer when paying, thereby shifting the liability for fraudulent card payments from merchants to the issuer in case of disputes. Airwallex supports 3DS 2 on all authorization transactions generated via business or individual cards.
3DS 2 is the latest 3DS version designed to enhance security in online purchases while providing frictionless checkouts if you're considered low risk by the card issuer. The issuer determines the risk based on the information available during verification. When additional information is required for verification, the issuer will present a challenge based on your preferred authentication method, for example, entering a OTP (One-time password) sent to your phone/email. 3DS 2 provides an optimal 3DS experience regardless of the interface (mobile app or website).
Airwallex uses the following fields to send the OTP.
- Individual cards:
- Business cards:
