We now have 3D Secure as part of the checkout process on the snookerbilliardspool.co.uk website to give you a safer shopping experience when using your credit card online. Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode follow the same principles as Chip and Pin and help to protect your card against unauthorised use when you shop via the Internet. This process is simple and will give you added protection, security and peace of mind. You may have already registered for this service on another online retail site but if you haven't it's a simple process, as detailed below. When you reach the checkout process you will have the opportunity to register for either Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. To sign up for the service simply follow the online instructions which are linked directly to your card issuer, you will be asked to set up your new personal password (which is linked to your card not the computer) and then once your card issuer has confirmed your identity you can continue to shop! It's a one-off registration process which means that you will be able to use the same password for all future purchases you make with all participating retailers, not just snookerbilliardspool.co.uk. And if you've already registered elsewhere you will simply have to enter your password. Alternatively you can contact your bank directly to register. Please visit Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode for more information. If you choose not to register during the checkout process, depending on your card issuer, we may not be able to process your order. A different method of payment will be required to complete your purchase.
