  • 3-D Secure

    3-D Secure is an internationally recognized security standard that offers protection for payments by credit and prepaid cards online. 3-D Secure is used by many online shops and is free of charge.

    This is how 3-D Secure works

    Once you have registered for the service, a new window opens during the payment process next time you make purchases online. The security notice you have selected appears in the window, prompting you to enter your personal password for identification purposes.

    Here’s how to register for 3-D Secure

    You can either register directly here or you will be asked to do so automatically next time you make purchases from an online shop that offers 3-D Secure. You need your credit or prepaid card to register as well as your card account number. This information can be found on your transaction overview/monthly invoice or in e-finance.

    Changing the password and security notice

    Under “My 3-D Secure”, you can change your password and security notice at any time and as often as you wish.

    Safe use of PostFinance credit/prepaid cards

    • Sign the back of the card immediately upon receipt.
    • Always keep the card in a safe place and check regularly to ensure that it is still in your possession, particularly when travelling.
    • If your card is lost, stolen or withheld by an ATM, or if you suspect it is being misused, you should ask PostFinance Customer Service to block it immediately.
    • Keep the Customer Service telephone number (blocking center) to hand at all times by storing it in your mobile phone.
    • Check your monthly bill immediately upon receipt against your purchase receipts, which should be retained for this purpose. Report any discrepancies to PostFinance Customer Service, in particular debits resulting from misuse of the card, within 30 days of receipt of your monthly bill.
  • Should you lose your card, we’re there for you 24/7. We will replace the card as quickly as possible, usually within three working days.
