The extent to which the payment service provider and/or merchant complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). All organisations that pass, hold or process cardholder information need to comply with these regulations.

3D Secure is a protocol that is designed to provide an additional security layer for online debit and credit card transactions. Visa offers this service under Verified by Visa and MasterCard’s service is called SecureCode.

After submitting card details via the merchant’s website, the cardholder is redirected to their i-banking system. This is the most secure online transaction type as by entering the i-banking system, cardholder proves that not only he has payment card details, but also has access to the i-bank system, which eliminates the possibility of fraudulent use of stolen payment card data.

Commercial cards are covered by the Verified by Visa scheme.

However, as of June 2009, MasterCard has reinstated an exclusion of commercial cards from the global interregional merchant-only MasterCard SecureCode liability shift program.

In all cases regarding questions on liability shifts, we recommend that you speak to your Account Manager.
