How do I verify a credit card in UniversePay?

In order to make purchases with a credit card via UniversePay, your card needs to be verified first. This is required for a raised level of security and as a method against credit card fraud. 

The verification process needs to be done only once for each card. 


  • There is a limit of 3000.00 $ per day for transactions via UniversePay.

Step 1. 

To start the verification, please make a purchase of hashrate as usual selecting Credit Card as the Payment Method. You will be then taken to the UniversePay hosted page. 


Step 2.

Please file all the fields: full card number, expiration date, CVV/CVC security code and the email address (please enter the email that you use on your account). Click "Checkout".


Step 3. 

If your card supports MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa, you will be taken to your bank to complete the payment. You will be asked to enter the confirmation code for the card.

NB! If the card does not support these standards you will not see this page. Go to step 4.


Step 4.

The system will reserve the funds on your bank account. You will now need the security code from the description to complete the payment.

You can see the payment description in your bank statement online, in an SMS from your bank or by contacting your bank's support. The statement will show the amount reserved and the code will appear in the transaction details (marked in red in the image). 



Step 5. 

To complete the verification please enter the payment security code into the relevant input field (marked in red in the image). Click "Confirm".



In case you close or exit the verification screen for some reason you may return to this screen by going into your History tab, where under Purchases you may click Continue next to your pending purchase.


Step 6. 

Congratulations! Your card is now verified to use in!
