Payment failures – Solutions

Credit cards & 3d Secure

The payment provider Valitor / Rapyd has implemented the new layer of card security - 3d Secure. For extra fraud protection, 3D Secure (3DS) requires customers to complete an additional verification step with the card issuer when paying. If it has not been activated for your card, please use the PayPal payment gateway. There you can select pay with Debit or Credit Card and they do not require cards to have 3d Secure.

You do not need to sign up for PayPal – You do not need a PayPal account
