Secure Shopping

3D Secure

At your security is our highest priority so we have additional security to give you peace of mind.
3D Secure acts like a Chip & Pin for your online purchases and protects you by asking for a secret password.
The new step within the payment process allows your card issuer the ability to fully authenticate cardholders during the online purchase, reducing the likelihood of fraudulent usage.

Verified by Visa & Mastercard Secure Code

Verified by Visa (VbV) and MasterCard Secure Code (MSC) often referred to as 3D Secure or Payment Authentication, are the latest fraud prevention initiatives launched by the card schemes as a more secure method for authenticating you the cardholder at the time of the transaction. Both schemes work in the same way – by using personal passwords, set by you the cardholder, to add an extra layer of protection when you shop online. The instructions that you see on the pages within our site are coming direct from your card issuing bank (e.g. Halifax, Sainsbury's, Alliance. HSBC and Leicester) and any information that you submit on these authentication screens are securely passed to your card issuing bank, no information will be captured, stored or viewed on any system.
