3.2 Credit Card Validation
3.3 Verified by Visa & MasterCard SecureCode
Online shopping made safer. Scorpio is working together with Visa and MasterCard to offer you a safer shopping experience when using your credit card online. Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode follow the same principles as Chip and Pin, by helping to protect your card against unauthorised use when you shop via the Internet. If your bank or card issuer is already a part of this scheme, then you might have already noticed the Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode page appear when you last made a purchase with a participating retailer on the Internet. If your bank is yet to introduce this security measure then the following information will explain how it works and the added protection benefits of registering.
Online Protection Benefits:
Shop online with added security and peace of mind
Your personal password is linked to your card only, and not to your computer
This security scheme will help to prevent unauthorised purchases
How it Works: When you reach the checkout process at Scorpioshoes.com (or any participating retailer) you will have the opportunity to register for either Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. Simply sign-up for the service following the online instructions that are linked directly to your card issuer, set up your new personal password once your card issuer has confirmed your identity, and continue shopping. This is a one-off registration process, so you will be able to use the same password for all future purchases you make with participating retailers. Alternatively you can contact your bank directly to register, or visit Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode for more information. Please note: If you choose not to register during the checkout process, depending on your card issuer, we may not be able to process your order. A different method of payment will be required to complete your purchase.
