If paying by credit card: 3-D Secure (3DS) is an additional security layer introduced by credit card issuers for online credit and debit card transactions to avoid credit card fraud. It typically requires cardholders to enter an additional password when making an online purchase or payment. If you do not go through this protocol if and when requested, your payment is likely to be refused by your card issuer.
