Great news, our cards benefit from Visa's additional layer of consumer protection - Verified by Visa. This feature needs to be enabled when prompted.
Verified by Visa (VBV) is a program offered by Visa which protects both consumers (you) and merchants. As soon as you've set it up, you've put another barrier between you and any potential fraudsters out there. Setting it up is easy:
- When you use your Plutus Debit Card for the first time at an online retailer which participates in VBV you will be prompted to register.
- Enter the details requested from your Plutus Debit Card, read the Ts&Cs and 'activate now'
- Create a password - make this one extra secure.
Done! You're all set.
Now each time you make an online purchase at a retailer which supports VBV, you may be prompted for some additional information to verify your identity.
Finding out if an online retailer utilises VBV is easy - you can learn how to do it in this short video here.
