The general idea is to split the payment by credit card for an e-commerce user in two ways so that he feels more secure regarding his transactions via internet. First, the user has to fill up a registration form via internet in whitch he gives a personal identification number (PIN), his telephone number (mandatory parameters) and optinally some additional informati- ons like e-mail address. On the contrary to the state of the art it is not requi- red to give the credit card informations via internet respectively an IP-network. Up to now it is necessary that the user has to give his name, the credit card number and the expiry date of thr card into an inter- net form.
