Most banks in South Africa now require an additional level of security for credit cards for making online purchases. Should you be using a Visa or Mastercard, there is a high possibility that your bank will require this additional step in the purchasing process. You will need to hve registered your card with your cellphone number with your bank that they can contact you when you make an online purchase (contact via SMS) and provide you with a once off security pin code to type in to verify the purchase. Should you not yet have registered your card with your bank and you see the 3D Secure screen appear during your purchasing process, you will need to visit your bank’s website to make the once-off registration first in order to complete the purchase. Your purchase will not be authorised without this step. Should you have any concerns, please contact us.
Please note that Gift Experience South Africa will never contact you requesting your credit card details by email. We may need to contact you by phone, however as an additional security mesure, you can request that you phone us back using our publicised number.
If you have any questions about buying online please contact us.
