Control of cards with unconditional authorization

A card with unconditional authorization is a payment card. Every time the card is used, the account balance is checked. The operation is not authorized if the provision is insufficient.

To trigger one or more actions when a buyer is using a Visa or a MasterCard card with unconditional authorization to make a payment:

  1. Click on Enable.
    The green bar indicates that the profile is activated.
  2. Select MAESTRO or VISA_ELECTRON from the list of card types that will trigger one or more actions.
  3. Select the action that you wish to trigger when the profile appears.
    The possible values are:
    • Raise an alert
    • Manual validation
    • Disable 3D Secure
    • Decline
    If you want to define one or more other actions:


With a card of type 'MAESTRO, it is not possible to select the action Disable 3D Secure. A Maestro card is a MasterCard debit card and for this card type, MasterCard requires 3D Secure. If this data is missing from the authorization, the payment is rejected.

  1. Click on Add.
  2. Select another action that you wish to trigger when the profile appears.
  3. If you wish to select another card type, repeat the steps 2 and 3 and, if needed, the steps 4 and 5.
