How to confirm online Visa card payments with the Paysera app?
Yes, shopping online is fun, but is it safe too? We do our best to help you stay protected. When you use your Visa card online, we've added an extra layer of security: confirming payments with the Paysera mobile app. This ensures it's really you making the purchase, keeping your Visa card safe from any unwanted surprises. Let’s talk about the details.

Why is it necessary to confirm online Visa payments using the Paysera mobile app?

As hinted just now, the short answer is – for your privacy and security.

As for the longer answer… This additional step is here to confirm your transaction was made by you and not someone who’s not supposed to be using your Visa card information. However, even if someone gets hold of your card details, they can't do a thing without your phone and PIN code on the Paysera app.

It might not sound like much, but you’d be surprised how helpful this extra security step truly is.

What steps are involved in confirming a Visa card payment?

You’ll need to have a Paysera account, our mobile app, and an active Visa card. So if you don’t have either one or one of them – go ahead and get it all set up. The Paysera account and app are free of charge!

If you already have a Paysera account and the Paysera mobile app is set up, just make a purchase and the notification will pop up on your phone, asking you to confirm the payment. All you need to do is tap the notification and enter your PIN code to confirm the purchase.
