Hi All,

Just in process of signing up to this through SECPAY...does anyone have any insight or information as to how this affects conversions. I mean I'll know soon enough anyway but just wondering if anyone else has feedback? ;-)

Cheers, T

In our case, it reduced conversions, thanks to popup blockers installed on people's computers.

Depends how it's set up. If it's as a popup, you're not going to get many results as so many people block popups now. If it's neatly explained and integrated then it can be useful, but my own experience was that it caused confusion, and you can often bypass it anyway so it's a little pointless. It's supposed to be good for merchants in that it removes your liability for fraudulent orders, but that's not the whole story if you read the small print. It's probably worth a try though so you can monitor the success and dropped carts compared to current sales.

Just make sure you understand everything on VBV and MSC. Blogmerchantaccount as a story on some issues with MSC in which you might not be protected.

Integrations are done inline within the website. The programs allowed us to break into the international market, reduce processing fees and increase security.

Its a no brainer for US based merchants in the medium to large category.

Yes, we're trying to incorporate it without pop-ups however dont want easy sales to be put off by yet more details to fill in. We shall see ;-)

I'm a huge advocate of the programs. I also am a huge fan of alternative Payments like PayPal and BML. I think they do a much better job of authenticating their users than the associations.

VbV/MCSC works, as long as you undertsand the programs. Elimintaing your liability for fraud and cutting CBs by 70% is the initial perk, but you have to know there are much more.
