What about direct debits?

If the payment is a recurring one and your card is charged by the merchant on a regular basis, you only need to authenticate the transaction the first time, when activating the direct debit order. 

Alpha Bank may classify certain merchants and websites in the list of allowed or trusted ones (“whitelist”), for which two-factor authentication is not required. In addition, the need for authentication depends on the decision of the card issuer and the merchant.
