You can pay by credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express), Paypal, Klarna (Pay in 3 instalments) and Apple Pay. You can select the payment method you prefer at the end of the purchase process.
Payments are made directly on a secure server, with SSL encryption to ensure the absolute security of transactions.
At Havaianas we constantly adapt our payment gateways so that they have the most rigorous security systems for our customers. We have already adapted to the new European regulations for PSD2 online payments.
If you buy online regularly, you will have verified that there are different ways to pay. In some online stores they only ask for your card data with the CVV, others your data and a code that they send to your mobile, and others directly remember all your data so that you can make your purchases in a single click.
In this diverse scenario, the objective of the new PSD2 directive, which came into force on 01/01/2021, is none other than to reinforce the security mechanisms in electronic stores to guarantee that whoever makes a purchase is the legitimate owner of the card.
And how will we do it? Using strong customer authentication or two-factor authentication when paying online, for which your smartphone will be essential.
This mainly translates into confirming payments with at least 2 of these 3 possible ways:
1. Something you have: your mobile, your ID, a card, etc.
2. Something you know: a PIN, a password, an answer, etc.
3. Something that “you are”: biometric identification using your eyes, your face, your fingerprint, your voice, etc.
