Netcetera’s multi-client 3-D Secure Issuer Service is built around a state-of-the-art Access Control Server (ACS), certified with all major card networks. It is a Payment Service Directive (PSD2) ready solution which supports the regulatory’ s Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirement.

Supported by Netcetera’s ACS, DPG will be able to provide its bank customers with a one-click mobile app (OOB), one-time passcode (OTP), and risk-based authentication (RBA) use cases for seamless user authentication during payment.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
