1. How secure is shopping on the internet? Are the transactions as safe as in regular stores? Why?
As for now, MasterCard® cards have been a secure payment on the internet so far by using modern technologies, which make shopping as safe as in regular merchant shops. These include, SSL-encoding on data transfer, the PCI security standard (which defines the handling of data and is ensured by the MasterCard „Site Data Protection“ Programme), the CVC-Code and particulary the MasterCard® SecureCode™.
The main difference between shopping on the internet and in your local shop is, that the direct contact between the merchant and customer is missing. To make shopping even more secure, MasterCard has implemented the MasterCard SecureCode with credit card issued banks. With a self-chosen code (the SecureCode) every purchase is extra covered.
Payments with MasterCard are very safe due to modern security technologies in combination with some few precautionary measures – on the Internet and also in your local retailer. Overall, the advantages outweigh other payment methods. It is often forgotten, that these also bare risks e.g. prepayment (risk of loss through insolvency), direct debit (risk of misuse through too high or repeated charges, cash payment (loss, theft).
MasterCard SecureCode is an authentication procedure for even more secure shopping on the internet. In the payment process, the online shop sends a request to your bank. The bank opens a seperate window in your browser and asks for your code, the SecureCode, which is only known be you and your bank. The merchant is not involved here. This security request is seemless integrated into the payment process and completed very fast. You can shop easy and convenient und enjoy modern safety.
