=============================================================================== * PLEASE READ -IMPORTANT INFORMATION RELATING TO CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS * ===============================================================================
Recently FC2 has implemented 3D Secure (A system to authenticate credit card holders), in order to prevent unauthorized credit card use by third parties.
At present, payments to FC2 with VISA or MasterCard cards may require 3D Secure registration.Please note, the 3D Secure system name can vary between card companies (VISA has "Verified by VISA"; MasterCard has "MasterCard SecureCode"). The 3D Secure system is different from CVV system.
If your payment does not appear to have been cleared you may need to do the following. - Please visit your credit card company's website and register for 3D Secure. - If you made a payment to FC2 with a VISA or MasterCard card that has not been cleared, it may have failed the verification check. If that is the case, your payment will be returned (some companies may deduct fees) at some point in the near future.
