While shopping on the Internet


  • Shop only form reliable sites that you trust.
  • We recommend you to buy from the Internet sites having the sign of MasterCard SecureCode® or Verified by Visa. The Internet stores that do not have these signs haven’t got the 3D Secure standard and as such they bear increased risks from possible abuse.
  • Never enter your PIN code – it is never required for placing an order.
  • The following data are commonly required for making an Internet transaction: name and surname, address, card number, 3-digit validation code (marked on the back of the card) and the validity period.
  • Make sure that the Internet page on which you are entering the data form your card is safe – look for key or locker icon in the lower right corner of the screen and see if the Internet address begins with https:// instead of http://.
  • Keep records on internet sites you buy from. Many internet stores send an e-mail message to the buyer with all data of the order – keep the message and print it. It will help you in checking your statement of account and in case of complaint
  • Do not use a public computer. If you still buy through a public computer, do not use the “remember me” button and log out once you complete the order.
  • Never send data for your card if you have not initiated the order.
  • Check the terms for ordering and canceling of the order, since international orders and shipments can be subject to additional customs and other costs.
  • If you cancel the order, you must ask for a number certifying cancellation of the order, in order to avoid payment for the already cancelled order.
  • Ask for the seller’s telephone number and e-mail and write them down.
  • If you receive a notification for additional verification with a single-use code of 3DES Secure system, it will be sent to you by an SMS message to the phone number you had reported to the Bank. In order to realize the payment, you should enter this verification code in the window that will appear on the internet page.
