Shopping on The Racers Edge with your credit card is 100% Safe!
Shopping with us is secure and safe and is exactly the same as shopping with your credit card in a shopping centre, paying for meal when you eat out or doing your monthly groceries. Our credit card payment facility works the same way a speed-point does and all funds are transferred by the bank and not The Rcaers Edge.
All credit card transactions are encrypted using 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. This means that all details you enter on Max Motorsport are encrypted as a secret code before these details are sent between The Rcaers Edge and the bank.
Our registration documents and domain are verified by Thawte, giving all parties concerned protection against identity theft in pursuit of confidential information. All security measures implemented on The Rcaers Edge by VCS comply with leading standards and VCS is continually reviewing and adjusting our security profile to keep aligned with these standards. VCS provides safe secure credit card transactions.
MasterCard® SecureCode™ is a new service from MasterCard and your card issuer that provides added protection when you buy online. There is no need to get a new MasterCard or Maestro® card. You choose your own personal MasterCard SecureCode and it is never shared with any merchant. A private code means added protection against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card when you shop online. ?Every time you pay online with your MasterCard or Maestro card, a box pops up from your card issuer asking you for your personal SecureCode, just like the bank does at the ATM. In seconds, your card issuer confirms it's you and allows your purchase to be completed.
Verified by Visa is free to Visa cardholders and was developed to help prevent unauthorized use of Visa cards online. Verified by Visa protects Visa cards with personal passwords, giving cardholders reassurance that only they can use their Visa cards online. Once your card is activated, your card number will be recognized whenever it's used at participating online stores. A Verified by Visa window will automatically appear and your Visa card issuer will ask for your password. You'll enter your password to verify your identity and complete your purchase.
At stores that aren't participating in Verified by Visa yet, your Visa card will continue to work as usual.
3 Domain Security - is a new method of security mandated by the Card Associations to enhance the security of online transactions. Mastercard's product is called "SecureCode" and Visa's product is called "Verified by Visa".
The 3D-Secure refers to three domains involved in the security they are
the Acquiring or Merchant's bank
the Card Association's financial networks i.e. Mastercard and Visa
the Issuing or Cardholder's bank.
Very simply the system authenticates the cardholder before the transaction takes place by diverting the browser to the bank that issued the card, who then request some secret, perhaps a pin, from their cardholder that will conclusively prove that this actually is the cardholder entitled to use this card. Once they are satisfied that this is their cardholder they issue an authentication receipt which is then presented to the merchants bank along with the authorisation request. If the transaction is then approved by the issuing bank they may not charge the transaction back to the merchant because the cardholder disputes the transaction as not being originated by them.
Virtual Card Services is compliant and in fact was the first South African payment gateway to be certified by both Mastercard and Visa for 3D-Secure transactions through First National Bank, Standard Bank and ABSA.
