What is 3DS?

IMPORTANT: Please note that 3DS (3D Secure, SMS confirmation for payments) authorization is active for credit card payments. After placing an order, you'll be redirected to your bank's 3DS authorization page to confirm the payment. Ensure you have a stable WiFi connection or an active MTX package so the bank page can load successfully. If your card doesn't support 3DS/SMS confirmation, contact your bank for guidance on enabling this feature.

3DS (3-D Secure) is a security protocol used in online credit and debit card transactions. It adds an extra layer of authentication, helping to prevent unauthorized use of cards in online transactions. When you make a purchase online, 3DS may require you to complete an additional verification step with the card issuer, typically involving a password or a code sent to your phone. This process helps to ensure that the person making the transaction is the legitimate cardholder, thus reducing the risk of fraud in online payments.
