Arcot 2024 - Merchant 3D Secure Initiative - an offer to US, UK and Global Merchants

As part of Arcot’s mission to ensure merchants receive the highest levels of security and approval rates on eCommerce, Arcot, the recognized leader in 3D Secure is offering the following as part of a 2024 initiative: Arcot is offering merchants an opportunity to leverage the Arcot issuer base (5k+ issuers) and work together to increase approval rates by over 7% and enhance authentication performance.

Current 3DS Implementation Issues

Whether it is data packaging, latency, uptime, or overall configuration, too often 3D Secure is not optimized. Arcot wants to resolve these issues and has a 3DS offering specifically designed to work with our Arcot issuers. This provides merchants with the highest levels of performance, a dual supplier approach with the scale to manage all your transactions in the future. 

Arcot Key Components

  2. Arcot Merchant Risk Score - Complement your existing risk score and communicate more effectively with issuers on transaction risk, in turn reducing friction and supporting customers.
  3. Issuer Data - Arcot will return issuer perspectives from a unique issuer data set (including issuer risk score and reason codes) to further enhance decision-making.
  4. Fully Funded - Arcot will set up, service, and support a 3DS Server for you at no cost and use an API gateway to leverage your existing connections and feeds.
  5. Competitive Rates - Arcot will charge on a per transaction basis.
  6. Assigned Consultants - Arcot’s team of experts will support Arcot 3DSS to Arcot ACS optimization to drive better authentication results and approval rates.
