Safer online payments
Increase of Security for Online payments!
Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Albania increases security for online purchases to its card payment service, introducing technological innovation for strong cardholder authentication. This innovation comes with the introduction of the “One Time Password” when conducting transactions in the online marketplace. The code will be sent to the cell phone numbers that the cardholder has stated to the bank and must be active.
Specifically, after the customer has selected the product / service over the Internet, they will be required to enter their debit or credit card details to continue the purchase. At this point the customer will automatically receive the one-time SMS code and write it to the following e-commerce site to complete the authentication and transaction successfuly.
We want to notify customers who have a card payment service, that online transactions with merchants certified by Mastercard SecureCode and Verified by Visa will not be possible to make purchases without the authentication with the one-time password.
We also seek the understanding of all clients, who are unsure of what mobile number have stated at the Bank, to verify active mobile numbers at Bank branches, because the code will be sent to the number stated in the Bank system and the lack of active mobile number will make it impossible for them to conducting online transactions.
