How is 3D Secure different from the previous process of Transferring Money Online with 1st Contact?

The actual process of transferring money is exactly the same, with a once-off added step:
  • When affecting your online money transfer with your debit card, a link will appear that is redirected to your bank to authorise the payment to be deducted from your debit card.
  • This added step will only happen once, after which your bank will issue you with a password number, which can be used for future to use, to make this process faster and more efficient.
