Strong Customer Authentication

You may have heard that European payment rules are changing as at September 14, 2019.

In order to reduce fraud, the Payment Services Directive (known as PSD2) regulation will require Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) to apply to many online transactions conducted by European customers.

This means extra layers of authentication are being built into the online card payment system unless transaction-specific exemptions apply. 

If you’re using¬†PayNow then it will be business as usual for you. The team at PayNow are making sure your transactions are compliant with SCA and there will be no action required on your behalf.¬†
