Protect Your Online Transactions

We encourage all our online merchants to implement MasterCard® SecureCode™ so that they can protect their international sales from fraudulent transactions.

MasterCard Says:

The business case for electronic retailers to offer MasterCard® SecureCode™ protection to customers is compelling.

  • 60% of eCommerce chargebacks are “cardholder unauthorized” (the cardholder denies making the transaction). MasterCard® SecureCode™enables online retailers to reduce chargeback and fraud costs
  • 44% of consumers indicated having MasterCard® SecureCode™would increase their likelihood of buying more online
  • MasterCard® SecureCode™makes accepting cards from other countries easier and less risky – helping online retailers move into new markets
  • Retailers who are enabled with MasterCard® SecureCode™can be listed on the MasterCard Consumer Web site,, for free.

MasterCard® SecureCode™is initiated on a merchant’s web site and interacts with both the cardholder and their card issuer. When your customers check out, an in-line window appears asking them to enter a unique, personal code, that has been registered with their bank. The bank then authenticates the cardholde, and provides the Internet merchant with evidence of the online purchase.
