Does outdoorphoto.co.za store my credit card information?
Your card information is not stored on Outdoorphoto’s website, but by VCS. Virtual Card Services is a third party payment gateway, who makes use of the 3D secure option (3 Domain Security). The system authenticates the cardholder before the transaction takes place by diverting the browser to the bank that issued the card, who then request some secret, perhaps a pin, from their cardholder that will conclusively prove that this actually is the cardholder entitled to use this card. Once they are satisfied that this is their cardholder they issue an authentication receipt which is then presented to the merchant's bank along with the authorisation request. If the transaction is then approved by the issuing bank they may not charge the transaction back to the merchant because the cardholder disputes the transaction as not being originated by them. Virtual Card Services is compliant and in fact was the first South African payment gateway to be certified by both Mastercard and Visa for 3D-Secure transactions through First National Bank, Standard Bank and ABSA.
