From the 1st of January 2021, new regulations came into effect across Europe which require most types of internet payments to be made with an extra security layer called 3D Secure (or 3DS). These requirements are set out in the updated Payment Services Directive (PSD2). Regulations expand the range of card transactions for which more secure authentication is required. Strong customer authentication (static password and one time password in ConnectPay case) must be applied by merchants for customer identification in addition to the details printed on the payment card. This provides extra safety for customers who use cards for payments.
These same regulations also require card issuers to decline certain payments if they weren’t processed using this extra security layer called 3D Secure (3DS).
ConnectPay cannot accept purchases from merchants within the EEA that do not support 3D secure. Payments made online without the merchant prompting you to complete 3DS will be declined by us as part of our regulatory obligations.
The new regulation only applies to a transaction if both sides (cardholder and merchant) are in the European Economic Area. For example – payments made on the internet within the EU/EEA.
Customers outside EU/EEA will not be affected by these new regulations.
If you decide to close your ConnectPay account, you need to inform our Customer Support team by sending an email to [email protected] or through the Online Banking message.
If you have a debt in your account, you need to make sure you cover it before we can close your account. If there are any funds left in your account, you need to transfer it to your chosen bank account before we close your ConnectPay account. Alternatively, we can make the transfer for you. In this case, you will have to cover administrative/transfer costs.
If you decide to close your account with ConnectPay after 6 months from account opening have passed, we will not charge you any additional fees and once you have settled any outstanding debts, we will close the account for you. If, however, you decide to close the account before 6 months have elapsed from the account opening we will ask you to pay an amount equal to minimum monthly fee that you would incur until the end of the 6 months period. For example, your minimum monthly commitment is 10 EUR, and you decide to close your account after 2 months from account opening, so we would ask you to cover the remaining 4 months worth of minimum monthly commitment, which in this case would be 40 EUR.
Once there are no pending operations in your ConnectPay account, it takes up to 3 business days to close it. We will inform you by email when all the procedures have been completed and your account is no longer valid.
Unlike traditional banks, ConnectPay does not invest your money. Therefore, your money is always instantly available.
