Purchase - Use 3D Secure (3DSv2)

Process a payment with authenticated 3-D Secure information



To simplify your development and have consistency across the various Purchase requests - all Purchase API calls can also be reached at the following endpoint with any combination of the required Purchase... parameters :


QorCommerce supports processing sales for cardholders authenticated by Visa ("Verfied by Visa"), MasterCard ("SecureCode"), Amex ("SafeKey"), Discover ("ProtectBuy") and JCB ("J/Secure") though 3-D Secure for eCommerce transactions.

3-D Secure allows enrolled cardholders to be authenticated with a password or PIN before processing any online payments. Sales based on a 3-D Secure authentication are much more secure and the merchant benefits from the payment guarantee (liability shift).

3-D Secure is possible for online internet, browser-based payments only. This API supports host payment authorization when required 3-D Secure digital signatures are present.

More information on 3-D Secure can be found here…


    1. The client app passes the cardholder’s credit card data and purchase information as required by the 3-D Secure provider.

    3. The customer authenticates their enrolled card with a PIN, password,
      certificate or any other secure identification methods required by the 3-D Secure provider.
    4. The result of the authentication is returned to the customers browser with values required by QorCommerce to process a 3-D Secure authenticated transaction.
