The Archery Shop Ltd use 3-D Secure for all transactions, this is like a Chip & PIN for online purchases designed to protect the consumer and merchant by asking a secret password and a personal message during the transaction process. Developed by Visa (Verified by Visa) and MasterCard (SecureCode) and used by most retailers, it has rapidly become a widely accepted standard.

From the 1st July 2008 MasterCard and Visa started mandating SecureCode/VBV (3-D Secure), preventing Merchants from accepting Maestro (formerly Switch) payments online legitimately after this time. Without 3-D Secure Merchants will be breaking card scheme rules and could be liable to pay heavy fines.

Cards Without Issue Numbers.  When paying with certain cards such as Maestro/Switch you will be asked for an issue number. If your card doesn't have one simply inset a 0, make sure you enter both your valid from and expiry dates when prompted.
