Why 3D Secure?

This platform allows you to enjoy the following benefits:

  • Absolute protection of your debit card against unauthorised use
  • Fewer steps to upload your money transfer, as no documentation is required to verify your debit card
  • An efficient and user-friendly process

Will 3D Secure change how transfers are submitted?

The actual transfer process is exactly the same, with a once-off added step:

  • When making your secure online money transfer with your UK debit card, a link will appear that redirects you to your bank. Here, you will authorise the payment to be deducted from your debit card.

This step will only be added the first time you make an online transfer after registering with 3D Secure. After this, your bank will issue you with a password. This can be used for future transfers; making this process faster and more efficient.
