Security When Processing Payment

ETS processes payments with your security in mind. This may impact your online experience. Visa Secure/Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode, American Express, SafeKey, and Discover ProtectBuy 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.
