Payments & Security on Miles For Style

About 3 D Secure:

3D Secure is an added layer of security to ensure that all online card transitions in South Africa are safe and secure. It is mandated by the Card Associations and managed by South African banks.

MasterCard uses a security product called SecureCode. Visa uses a security product call Verified by Visa.

With 3D Secure, your online credit and debit card payment is redirected to your bank’s 3D Secure service (on your bank’s website) to facilitate the authentication process for your online payment. Authentication is done using One Time Pins (OTPs) sent to your mobile phone.

How to activate my credit card for 3D Secure?

How will I know if my card is activated or not?

If your card has not yet been activated for 3D Secure, you should see a notification in the verification panel. MasterCard holders will be prompted to “Protect / Activate your MasterCard Online.” Visa holders will be asked to “Activate Verified by Visa on your card.”

Can I activate my card at Checkout?

If you are prompted to register your card at Checkout, you can click on your respective banks link (see screenshot below) and a popup will open for you to register. Once registered, close this window, cancel and then retry your payment
