Doha, March 9, 2011
The International Bank of Qatar (IBQ) has launched its new online security service, the 'IBQ Card Secure', in association with Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode online authentication systems.
The IBQ Card Secure service is designed to offer customers further protection while shopping online with IBQ credit cards.
The IBQ Card Secure service is free of charge to all IBQ credit cardholders and registration to the service is available through a dedicated portal on the bank’s website. Once registered, customers will be able to verify all their online transactions using a password when shopping online at participating merchants.
To mark the launch of the new service, IBQ is also running a special promotion for its Visa credit cardholders, IBQ Visa Platinum and IBQ Visa Infinite, who register for the service before April 10. Visa credit cardholders will be eligible to purchase a range of iPads at exclusive prices.
