Visa and MasterCard payments are temporarily unavailable
This is the exact title of the today’s announcement at the official Alertpay’s blog. Shortly the Visa and Mastercard card payments are temporarily displayed due to unspecified reasons, characterized by Alertpay as problems beyond their control. According to our info, there is a technical problem since the time Visa and Mastercard decided to add an extra layer of security on the card transactions (3-D Secure step). Unfortunately Alertpay can’t resolve this malfunction and disabled this feature without anybody knowing when this will come back. Really sad news for the Alertpay users.
Update – June 07, 2012: The function is currently unavailable until further notice. Source: Cannot validate a credit card from the USA.
