What is 3DS / Verified by Visa?

3DS (3D Secured), also known as “Verified by Visa” is an additional layer of security to ensure the payments are made by the rightful owner of a credit card. Through our partnership with Stripe, we are able to offer 3DS to all of our clients on our Visa card.

How does 3DS work?

When a purchase is made, if there is any doubt, such as a new device, an unusually large purchase, or a foreign transaction, Visa may ask you to provide more information to confirm the purchase.


For example, Visa may ask you for text message verification or for biometric/Face ID through a mobile app. Once the purchaser is verified, the purchase will go through.
