Each Clearhaus account has a set of Transaction rules from Clearhaus. This can e.g. be a maximum amount that can be processen in a given period, or that all payments must go through 3-D Secure.

Reject authentication if not fully 3-D Secure
Some merchants will get payments rejected by Clearhaus with an error message of “not fully 3dsecure”. “Not fully 3dsecure” means that the cardholder has not confirmed their identity in the 3-D Secure flow. Reasons for this includes that the card issuer does not support 3-D Secure or has a temporary problem on the 3-D Secure service.
You can check if a payment has been “fully 3dsecure” on the 3-D Secure Status. 3-D Secure Status = Y means that the cardholder has been “fully” through 3-D Secure.
On the specific rejected payment there is unfortunately nothing we can do. I some cases it will be possible to contact Clearhaus, and hear about the possibility of removing the rule or adjust to only require “some 3dsecure”.
