Why am I being asked to verify my card details?

You may be asked for an additional level of authentication called MasterCard Secure Code or Verified by Visa depending on your card type. These systems have been put in place by the card networks and the banks to provide an extra layer of security against fraud, and some banks have started to make it compulsory for all online transactions when shopping with a merchant that supports Secure Code / Verified by Visa as we do.
