SANParks launching 3D-Secure

Date: 2015-08-25

To our valued online customers, please note that tonight (25 August 2015) at 20:00, SANParks will be launching 3D-Secure - an E-Commerce regulation enforced by PASA (Payment Association of South Africa).

This is a method of authentication security where upon payment for reservations, the clients are required to put in a One Time Password/PIN (OTP), which is typically sent to their mobile phones. This is to authenticate the cardholder and ensure that they are entitled to use the card.

Hi DB,

How will this authentication work with foreign phone numbers?

Hi Stark,

The authentication mechansims will use teh verification option for either VISA or Mastercard as per the users location - there is no direct impact that international users are affected.

I am not 100% sure of who sends the challenge SMS / Message, but there are international purchases being processed on both Visa and Mastercards - so the mechanism in place are working.
