On mobile (via SMS)

Code not received

It may happen that the code takes a while to arrive or that you don't receive it.

To start, you can click on "Send a new code".

If it doesn't arrive but you need to make an emergency purchase, you can replace your phone number with that of a colleague (or someone close to you), via the interface (on the "My profile" page, by clicking on your avatar at the top right).

If this does not work, you should try switching your phone off and on again.

If the code has still not arrived on your phone, please contact support@spendesk.com with :

-✆ the name of your mobile network provider (example: Vodafone, EE)

-⛳️ Geographical location

👉🏻 Some network providers are not yet supported by our confirmation code sending partner. Therefore, we will do our best once we have the name of your provider to support it.

🚨 Make sure your phone number is filled in and correct in your Avatar > My Profile page before trying a payment with 3DS security. Otherwise, you will not be able to receive the code.

Code received late

Turning your phone off and on should do the trick. If this happens every time, please feel free to send a message to our support team. We will do our best to contact our partner and investigate. It may be that your network provider is involved and not supported by our partner, which we will check.

On the mobile app (by notification then validation)

💡 If you see the "Notification sent" screen on the desktop but do not receive the notification:

  • you can open the app and authenticate yourself: if there is an "action in progress" on your account, it will be displayed automatically.

  • check if notifications are allowed for the Spendesk app in your operating system settings, then try logging in again once enabled.

→ if none of this has worked, you can log out of the app and log back in, then try the payment again.

NB: a user can only have one device (phone) registered at a time.

Revert to SMS verification if you're on mobile app verification

You can't. This new 2-factor authentication is more secure than SMS OTPs (which can be more easily hacked), and is now mandatory following PSD2 regulations in Europe. Every European banking service must implement this new verification process, which is why we added it!
