For e-commerce transactions (online purchases) using an Alpha Bank card, further to the Push Notification method, there is also available the option of applying strong customer authentication using the combination of a One-Time Password, the Alpha SecureCode together with a personal code, the ePIN. The ePIN is a 4-digit private number that you (the cardholder) will set and remember. The ePIN will be used in combination with the Alpha SecureCode you will receive via SMS or Viber, for even more secure authentication of your transactions. Once both details are verified, the transaction is authenticated and will proceed for approval. What information will the Push Notifications contain? For your online transactions with an Alpha Bank card, Push Notifications will contain the details of the business, the amount and the date of the transaction and part of the number of the card used.
