3D Secure, or 3 domains secure, is an authentication protocol that represents an additional layer of for online credit card transactions. It also provides protection from fraudulent card use for the seller and his acquiring bank, the cardholder and his card issuing bank, and Card Association's networks (Visa, MasterCard, Meeza).

How it works?

After a customer clicks the payment button, your server should send a 3DS payment request to FawryPay including your return URL. This return URL shall be used to redirect your client back to your application after completing payment authentication with the card issuer third party. FawryPay will respond with the redirect URL to which you will need to redirect your client for payment authentication. After redirect, your client will be redirected to the card issuer's authentication window to provide additional authentication data, for example a password or an SMS verification code, and confirm the card payment. This authentication is normally marked with MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa or Meeza logos. There your customer needs to enter a personal password (or security code) which is verified by his/her card issuer. The payment authentication result of the card issuer bank shall be sent back to FawryPay which, in turn, will redirect your client to your provided return URL.
