3D Secure Merchant Information Required

As we gear up to release 3D Secure services to our clients, we need to discuss some “back office” information needed for 3DS authentication.

3DS authentication is a merchant-initiated activity. Similar to charging a card, an organization needs to be registered with an acquirer as a “merchant” in order to perform these actions.
