Secure Internet Shopping from Standard Bank is in line with MasterCard and Visa’s secure online shopping initiatives in the form of SecureCode and Verified respectively.
Merchants participating in Secure Internet Shopping service will accept payment with a Standard Bank card only if you have registered for the service. Note that you will not be able to use your credit card to shop online at participating merchants unless you have registered for the service.
