What is Verified by Visa / MasterCard SecureCode?

Verified by VISA and MasterCard SecureCode are part of the “3D Secure” program developed by the credit card industry, of which Teranet is a participant. The program is designed to ensure the safety and security of certain online transactions. For this reason, at the payment stage of your order, you may be directed to your credit card’s secure payment page.


If you do not have a Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode password registered at time of checkout (not your banking PIN or OnLand password) and if your financial institution participates in this program, you will be asked to enroll at the payment step. You will then be redirected to your credit card’s issuing bank to set up your account. For further enquiries, we suggest contacting your financial institution.
