Pliant offers Visa credit cards, both virtual and physical. Regarding physical cards, customers can choose between Blue (Visa Platinum Business) and Black (Visa Infinite Business credit cards). Pliant is neither a prepaid nor a debit card and, therefore, is bank account independent, offers maximum card acceptance, and does not need to be charged in advance.
Virtual cards work the same way as physical cards, only that no plastic version of the card is provided, with card data being only accessible via your Pliant app. Advantages of virtual cards include their instant availability. They also cannot be lost and are offered with a range of flexible usability options. Since they are offered at no extra cost, separate virtual cards can be issued for specific merchants or purchases with individual settings tailored to the specific use case. That way, if something is wrong with one card, there is no need to update card data across multiple merchants.
Pliant offers Visa cards, which are accepted by over 40 million online and offline retailers in over 200 countries.

3D Secure is a free service facilitated by VISA that lets you transact securely on “Verified by Visa“ / “Visa Secure” online merchants using your Pliant credit cards. It adds a security layer by an additional verification step. During this verification you must provide a one-time password that is only available to you.
All Pliant credit cards are automatically equipped with 3D Secure. During your online purchase you will receive the one-time password via SMS for the verification. This password you can input into the verification page that will show the Visa logo and confirm the payment by clicking confirm / send. If the password is correct, the transaction will be successful and otherwise declined. Pliant credit cards also work at merchants that do not participate in Visa 3D secure program.
This service is offered due to the EU’s Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) which will mandate Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) before initiation of the payment. Therefore, Visa recently enhanced its security for online purchases including both e-commerce and m-commerce transactions to satisfy this new standard.
In case you are not receiving your one-time password, please check that your phone number is up to date within your user area or call our hotline.
