The operation will only proceed if the issuing bank of the card confirms the authentication code. In all other cases, the transaction will be rejected.

Galata reserves the right to check the personal details provided by customers and to take the appropriate steps (including the cancellation of the order, asking the customer for extra information, filing a complaint to the financial entity) in order to ensure that goods are dispatched in accordance with the data that is stated on the order.

You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorize payment for any reason.
