Securing Bank Cards Online
To pay online, you need to provide your card number, 3-digit code, specified on its reverse side (CVC), and expiration date. It is crucial to keep these details in secret:
- if you want to write them down, break them in peaces: keep your card number in one place, and its CVC in another
- if you make a transfer to or from your card, you only need to provide your card's number
- look for the PCI DSS logo: it indicates the site works under the international security standards.
We provide additional security: you can link your card and Yandex.Money Wallet together, and you won't need to specify its details for payments at online stores.
Security According to the PCI DSS
The PCI DSS stands for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, an international security standard. It includes 12 requirements for securing details; developed by the international payment systems Visa and MasterCard.
Every year certified auditors check whether our service complies with all requirements and issue the certificate afterwards.

Additional Payment Confirmation (3‑D Secure)
3-D Secure requires additional confirmation for payments with bank cards online. Banks usually send text messages with one-time passwords, sometimes issue special lists of codes, and rarely set permanent passwords. Fraudsters will not be able to pay without such password even if they manage to get all other details.
3-D Secure is usually activated automatically upon the card issue. If it is not activated for your card, activate this service in the bank or via an ATM.
Yandex.Money's plastic and virtual cards both have this security on by default. We send passwords at the phone number you linked with your Wallet.
