To make online Transactions safer, the Reserve Bank of India has made it mandatory, from 1st August onwards, for all online transactions to have an extra level of authentication. The ‘extra’ level, is a password that you will have to enter after entering your credit/debit card details while making online payments. You will require this ‘extra password’ for transacting on any website in India, including GiveIndia. This new technology is called VBV – Verified by Visa or MSC – MasterCard Secure Code.
How do I get this ‘extra password’?
All you have to do is log on to your bank’s website, register your card for Verified by Visa (or MasterCard SecureCode) and get your password. Each bank has its own process for card registration. So, hop on to your bank’s website and register now:
Great! Now, every time you donate on GiveIndia, after entering your card details on the ICICI payment gateway, you will be redirected to your bank’s website. You will need to enter your VBV/MSC password there after which you will be redirected back to GiveIndia.
What if my bank does not support Verified by Visa / MasterCard SecureCode?
If this is the case, you will not be able to donate on our website with a credit card. We request you to not let that deter you from completing your donation and choose another payment method instead ( which includes the option of sending across a cheque amongst others).
