How does it work?

Consumers pay with an AMEX credit card in online shops, physical stores and restaurants. When making an online payment, the consumer is asked to provide information from the credit card, including the name on the card, the 16-digit credit card number and the month and year in which the payment card expires. The consumer confirms the online payment by entering the 3-digit CVC code. Nowadays, online purchases are even better protected thanks to the American Express SafeKey (also known as 3D Secure). When completing an online payment, AMEX sends one-time verification codes via email or SMS. In this way, SafeKey provides even better protection against fraud and abuse.
