3D Secure is a FREE service facilitated by VISA and MasterCard that lets you transact online securely using your Debit or Credit Card. This service is available only on 3D Secure merchant sites. Verified by Visa (VBV) / MasterCard SecureCode (MSC) use password protection during an Internet purchase to authenticate the customer as an added fraud prevention measure.
VBV/MSC provides added assurance by verifying you while using your Standard Chartered Visa/MasterCard Card to make payments online. You can be assured that any online merchant giving VBV/MSC service is a legitimate commercial entity. A private code means added protection against unauthorised use of your Card when you make payments online.
VBV/MSC protects your existing Visa/MasterCard giving you assurance that you and only you can use your Visa/Master Card for electronic payments. The added protection of VBV/MSC is automatically enabled on your card.

You will need to enter this OTP on the 3D Secure page to authenticate your transaction.
No. Every 6 digit OTP is valid only for that particular transaction and cannot be used for any other transaction.
One time password (OTP) would be instantly sent to the mobile phone number in our records, after you have started the transaction and entered your card details.
