Yes, our website is 100% safe and secure. We have put all the necessary measures in place to ensure your personal and payment information remains secure.

3D Secure is an additional layer of online security that is now mandatory for all online retailers in South Africa. It’s also known as Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. It helps prevent fraud by protecting you against unauthorized transactions on your card(s).

YDE Online, along with PEACH, our trusted payment processor, uses 3D Secure to secure your online transactions and help protect you against fraud.

3D Secure requires you to enter a one-time PIN (OTP) to complete transactions on any website that features the ‘Verified by Visa’ or ‘MasterCard SecureCode’ sign. This OTP is sent to your registered mobile number or your email address, so only you have access to it.

By successfully completing 3D Secure verification, you’re able to prove that it really is you shopping, and not someone who has gained unlawful access to your card details. Only you, as the cardholder, will receive the password required to complete the transaction.

At this stage we don’t accept account payments online. If you wish to use your YDE Account card for items online, you can use our reserve in store service.
