Secure Online Shopping

What is Verified by Visa?
Verified by Visa provides added security to ensure that only you can use your Visa card to make purchases online.  It’s easy to activate for your existing card, and it’s free.

How it works

  • Through the bank that issued your Visa card, set up your verification method and activate your card in just a few minutes. Your bank may allow you to choose between setting a password or using a code sent via text message to your mobile phone.
  • Upon activation, Verified by Visa protects you at every participating online store.
  • When you shop at a participating online store, your card will be automatically recognized as protected by Verified by Visa.
  • Check your transaction details. Confirm that the instruction is what you have agreed with your card issuer.
  • Follow the instructions to complete the transaction.
  • Your issuer will verify your entries and the transaction will be completed upon successful validation.
