Note: Any credit/debit card branded with one of the seven accepted credit card logos can be processed.

- ETS reserves the right to add or delete payment options at its own discretion and without notice.
- After entering your credit card account number and selecting "Process Payment," you may be given the option to pay in the currency supported by your card issuer or in USD.
- ETS processes payments with your security in mind. This may impact your online experience. American Express SafeKey, Discover ProtectBuy, MasterCard SecureCode and Visa Secure/Verified by Visa are 3D Secure (3DS) online fraud prevention measures used by card companies as an added layer of security to protect cardholder account information. During the payment process you may be asked by your card issuing bank to verify cardholder identity by entering an authentication code known only to the cardholder and the bank. Failure to enter the required information or entry of invalid information will result in the sale being rejected. If you don't know your 3D-Secure passcode or password, and you are not being given the option to enroll online in the bank's pop-up screen, then you will need to contact your bank.
