This question comes up every now and again. When you’re checking out at PoolDawg and using a Visa or Mastercard, you may be prompted to register for the Verified by Visa or Mastercard SecureCode program. If you do, you’ll be presented with a form that looks like this:
The whole purpose of this program is to provide an extra layer of fraud protection for both the customer and the merchant. When you do enroll, you are enrolling with Visa or Mastercard, not PoolDawg, so we don’t capture any of that enrollment information.
Even though this is an important new level of security we’re all about giving you freedom of choice. That’s why when you’re on the checkout page, you can opt out of this verification program. On the last page of the checkout, you’ll be asked to enter your credit card information. If you don’t want to participate in the programs, simply uncheck the box that says Perform Verification. This will bypass the program altogether.
As always, if you have additional questions about how this program works (or if you need anything else), just give us a call at 866-843-3294.
