How 3D secure is affecting SA online stores - Realmdigital
How 3D secure is affecting SA online stores

The onset of compulsory 3D Secure implementation on March 1, 2015, for all online stores meant that the CVV number would no longer be sufficient for making secure online purchases. This was largely driven by the Payments Association of South Africa (PASA) and backed by multiple large banks, lobbying that the increased security would ensure less fraudulent activity on credit cards and benefit the e-commerce landscape in SA in the long run due to more positive online purchasing experiences.
