Payment Information
Payments. Payment by bank card online Our website is connected to Internet acquiring, and you can pay for the Service with a Visa or Mastercard bank card. After confirming the selected Product or service, a secure window will open with the payment page of the CloudPayments processing center, where you need to enter your bank card details. For additional authentication of the cardholder, the 3-D Secure protocol is used. If your issuing Bank supports this technology, you will be redirected to its server for additional identification. For information about the rules and methods of additional identification, check with the Bank that issued you a bank card.
The online payment service is carried out in accordance with the rules of the International payment systems Visa and MasterCard on the principles of confidentiality and security of payment, for this purpose the most up-to-date methods of verification, encryption and data transmission over closed communication channels are used. The bank card data is entered in a secure window on the CloudPayments payment page.
In the fields on the payment page, you need to enter the card number, the name of the cardholder, the expiration date of the card, a three-digit security code (CVV2 for VISA or CVC2 for MasterCard). All the necessary data is displayed on the surface of the bank card.
CVV2/CVC2 is a three—digit security code located on the back of the card.
Then, in the same window, your issuing bank's page will open to enter a 3-D Secure code. If you don't have a static 3-D Secure configured, it will be sent to your phone number via SMS. If the 3-D Secure code has not come to you, then you should contact your issuing bank.
3-D Secure is the most modern technology for ensuring the security of card payments on the Internet. Allows you to uniquely identify the authenticity of the cardholder performing the operation and minimize the risk of fraudulent card transactions.
Security Guarantees CloudPayments Processing Center protects and processes your bank card data according to the PCI DSS 3.0 security standard. Information is transferred to the payment gateway using SSL encryption technology. Further transmission of information takes place over closed banking networks with the highest level of reliability.
