Security Policy

NetcashNetcash process all credit card transactions. All credit card transactions are 128 bit Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encrypted. The company registration documents and the site's registered domain name are checked and verified by Thawte, ensuring the cardholder and merchant that nobody can impersonate Netcash to obtain confidential information.
Netcash is committed to providing secure online services. All encryption complies with international standards. Encryption is used to protect the transmission of personal information when completing online transactions. Netcash Internet servers are protected by firewalls and intrusion detection systems. The Merchant does not have access to credit details. Netcash continually reviews and enhances its security in line with technological changes.
All transactions will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR). We accept credit card payments via the website in which case 'NETCASH PTY PARKLANDS' will reflect on the card holder's statement.
improWEB - Automate your sales chain! is pleased to announce that we now support MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by VISA, major new initiatives from MasterCard and Visa that make our customers much less vulnerable to fraud. MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa provide the technology that enables a cardholder's identity to be verified online, using a password at the time of purchase. The process of verifying the cardholder's identity is called 'cardholder authentication'. The introduction of cardholder authentication is an important step towards making trading online more secure and reducing the risk of fraud in the non-face-to-face environment.
How do you protect yourself?

The Netcash payment gateway pages are 3D Secure compliant and conform to the Verified by Visa and Mastercard Securecode online security platform.

So for those who frequently shop online and wish to ensure their credit card details may not be fraudulently used, you will need to sign up for 3D Secure - which is an added security measure (and verification procedure) employed by the major credit card issuers - before your card will be processed online.

You will only need to enrol for 3D Secure once (for each credit card you own) to be able to safely shop online in the future. This is a 2 step process and can be instantly completed online via your bank's website and is a necessary procedure to ensure peace of mind whilst making online purchases.

The following are links to the 3D Secure activation (and enrolment) pages provide by your bank. Please choose the bank that your credit card was issued by:

Your secret PIN should never be shared with anyone. It works in the same way as entering your PIN at an ATM.

  • Choose and confirm a PIN. See "Your PIN" for more on this.

Your personal message
The phrase you enter may not exceed 30 characters and should be unique to you so that you can recognise it as yours. This gives you the assurance that your transaction is secure.

Verified by VISA and MasterCard SecureCode

Online shopping is always a pleasure, but also risky. That's why VISA has developed technology, such as 3D Secure, which is designed to protect you whilst you shop. 

Endorsed by MasterCard and supported by Absa, 3D Secure protects you (the cardholder) and the merchant by verifying your personal details during an online purchase, prior to the transaction being processed. 

How does it work?
Merchants are required to participate in the 3D Secure environment by using a software module called Merchant Plug-in (MPI). This software authenticates your personal details by means of a personal password and/or identity information during the online purchase process. This is entered on a secure and confidential screen, thus ensuring your safety against unauthorised use of card information.


  • 3D Secure protects your card (VISA and/or MasterCard) by using your personal password as authentication.
  • Ensures an additional level of protection when shopping online.
  • Works from any PC. No additional software installation is required, providing the PC has an internet connection.
  • Once activated, it ensures that nobody else can use your card at a participating merchant in an online shopping environment.
