    User Journey

    This following section will describe the user journey for a consumer:

    Depending on what country the consumer is based from, it will need to be verified with their corresponding authentication eg. bank ID, NemID etc.

    1. When your consumer chooses VISA or MasterCard as a payment method in the checkout, they will be prompted to enter their:
      • Card number (16 digits)
      • Expiry date (mm/yy)
      • CVC (3 digits)
    2. From here, they will be directed to the 3DS.
    3. After the verification and validation of the true identity with the strong authentication page, the consumer will be able to either approve or reject the payment.
    4. When the payment has been approved, the amount will be reserved on the card.
    5. When you dispatch the goods then the charge amount will be deducted as a charge request will notify Checkout about this.


    Checkout provides the possibility to test for VISA and MasterCard. You can test VISA and MasterCard payments in the Nexi Group testing environment.
