9. OTP Verification
To combat Credit Card fraud we have implemented a One Time Passcode (OTP) Verification process for all orders paid via Credit Card. It's a short, simple process that allows us to verify that your order is in fact genuine.
A OTP is sent to the mobile number you've entered into the order screen, you're required to enter it correctly for your order to be processed. This OTP process takes a total of 5-10 seconds.
