Zero Authorization

Zero Authorization is a MultiSafepay solution that lets you verify a credit card without charging the cardholder. Simply charge an amount of 0 EUR to the credit card (with or without 3D Secure authentication). MultiSafepay stores the sensitive payment details as a non-sensitive token, and then checks if the card is legitimate.

You can then also use tokens for Recurring Payments.

Zero Authorization supports Maestro, Mastercard, and Visa, and is available in all countries and currencies.

For how Zero Authorization can benefit your business, see 0-Authorization.
