Vantiv Expands 3DS Support with Addition of Discover ProtectBuy

April 19, 2016

Vantiv has expanded its support of various Three-Domain Secure (aka 3-D Secure, or just 3DS for short) card-brand offerings by now also supporting Discover’s ProtectBuy customer authentication solution.  

ProtectBuy helps reduce fraudulent online transactions, provides merchants and issuers with peace of mind, and minimizes friction during the shopping experience.   

With ProtectBuy, both merchants and issuers can help mitigate card-not-present fraud risk and reduce chargebacks by verifying the customer’s identity at the time of the transaction.   

ProtectBuy from Discover now joins Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code as the 3DS offerings currently supported by Vantiv. Additionally, support for American Express SafeKey is anticipated later this year.
