For more than thirty years, Visa has helped to set industry standards for secure payments between consumers and merchants. Verified by Visa protects online merchants in the following ways:
- You, as merchant, are not liable for fraud resulting from the unauthorized use of Visa cards.
- Fraud on your site is reduced.
- Your customers enjoy a safer place to shop.
- Transaction discount fees are lower in many cases.
Verified by Visa can provide merchants with significant savings in fraud-related costs. Merchants who use Verified by Visa are protected from fraud-related chargebacks on all personal Visa cards—credit or debit, domestic, or international—whether or not the issuer or cardholder is participating in Verified by Visa, with limited exceptions.
