All credit and debit card transactions on Amazon.in require you to enter the CVV number and 3-D secure password to provide you with increased protection while making payments using your card.
CVV stands for Card Verification Value and is generally the last three digits of the number present on the back of your card. It's located in or near the area where you sign your card.
When you make payments using credit/ debit card, your card number will be stored on our secure server so that you do not have to enter it every time you make a purchase using the same card. However, we will ask for your CVV number every time you place an order. Your CVV number will not be stored on our server to ensure enhanced security of your transaction.
For American Express cards, you will need to enter the zip/pincode of the billing address registered with your card. American Express will use this information as an additional security measure to approve your transaction.
3-D secure password is an additional password that you'll be asked to enter after entering your card details on the payments page. You'll be redirected to your bank's website from the payments page, where you'll have to enter the Verified by Visa password for Visa or SecureCode password for MasterCard.
Note: 3-D secure password has been made mandatory by the Reserve Bank of India to ensure safer online shopping. This will prevent misuse of a lost/ stolen card as the user will be unable to proceed unless they enter the password associated with your card, created by yourself and known only to you.
