Verified by VISA, 3D Secure Code of MasterCard

Now that the ISQOLS website is fully up and running, more and more membership renewals are coming in. Some of you might have already noticed that we adopted additional security measures for online credit card payments.

“Verified by Visa” (http://www.visaeurope.com/en/cardholders/verified_by_visa.aspx) and “Mastercard Secure Code” (http://www.mastercard.us/securecode.html) add an extra layer of security to online payments by verifying your identity to your credit card provider (not ISQOLS) and thus preventing credit card fraud. They are being implemented by more and more online shops and other sites that rely on online payments. Because we take the security of our members very seriously, we also decided to add some additional security.

All you have to do is check the compatibility of your credit card and sign up with your bank or credit card provider. This is quickly done online.

When making a payment to ISQOLS by credit card, you enter your credit card data as usual and a separate window will be opened containing a personalized message proving the request is genuine and not itself fraudulent. You will then be asked for a password or security number which you either determine yourself or receive from your credit card provider. Once submitted, your identity is confirmed and your payment authorized.

The new verified by Visa and MC procedures are so slow and the instructions so imprecise that I will just wait and renew my membership at the annual meetings. Perhaps the user interface can be fixed before then. If so, let me know.
