X-Cart:3-D Secure Payment Authentication
3-D Secure™ is an XML-based protocol used as an added layer of security for online credit and debit card transactions.
X-Cart supports 3-D Secure™ transactions with the multiple credit card processors such as:
- AuthorizeNet: AIM,
- eSelect plus,
- Sage Pay VSP Direct,
- PSiGate XML interface,
- PayPal Website Payments Pro,
- PayPal Payflow Pro.
Some of the credit card processors support 3-D Secure™ transactions through Cardinal Centinel® payment authentication platform, while others have integrated 3-D Secure™ and do not require any additional steps. All the settings that need to be adjusted are located on the corresponding payment method configuration pages.
X-Cart features integration with Cardinal Centinel® payment authentication platform (CardinalCommerce Corp.). This platform was designed to secure electronic commerce by providing consumers, merchants, credit/debit card issuers and processors the ability to conduct fully authenticated electronic payment transactions and to access confidential information safely, securely and privately. It helps minimize fraud and merchant chargebacks which are so damaging to both customers and your online business. Detailed information is available at http://www.cardinalcommerce.com.
Configuration pages of the credit card processors that support 3-D Secure payment authentication utilizing Cardinal Centinel® contain the following message:
