Simple Formations participates in the Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode™ programmes. These programmes allow cardholders to create a password that adds an additional level of protection to their card - a bit like "chip and pin" but for online transactions. When you enter your credit card number at the checkout, we check to see if you've registered for either programme. If you have, you must enter your password in order to complete your purchase.
MasterCard® SecureCode™ is a service from MasterCard and your card issuer that provides added protection when you buy online. You choose your own personal MasterCard SecureCode and it is never shared with any merchant. A private code means added protection against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card when you shop online. Every time you pay online with your MasterCard, Maestro or Solo card, a box pops up from your card issuer asking you for your personal SecureCode, just like the bank does at the ATM. In seconds, your card issuer confirms it's you and allows your purchase to be completed.
Verified by Visa
Verified by Visa is a service that lets you shop online with added confidence. Through a simple checkout process, Verified by Visa confirms your identity when you make purchases at participating online stores. It's convenient, and it works with your existing Visa card. Plus, Verified by Visa is easy to use. You register your card just once, and create your own password. Then, when you make purchases at participating online stores like ours, a Verified by Visa window will appear. Simply enter your password and click submit. Your identity is verified and the purchase is secure. To learn more, contact the financial institution that issued your Visa card.
