With 3DS v.1, previously Visa and Mastercard offered a liability shift where a check was done to see if the customer was enrolled, and, if the customer was not enrolled, the payment could continue without issue and a liability shift was provided.

3DS v.1 is being discontinued in October 2022, meaning Visa and Mastercard have made some changes to the rules around liability shifts for chargeback protection. This means that if a customer’s card is not enrolled for either 3DS v.2, or 3DS v.1, then you don’t have chargeback protection.

Liability shifts still exist on 3DS v.1 for Authentication Successful and Authentication Acknowledged until October 2022.
