FAQ About Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)
What is Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)?

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is a new set of rules that will change how consumers confirm their identity when making purchases online. Changes were introduced to online payments in order to provide further protection to customers. Under the Payment Service Directive 2 (PSD2), Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is required where a payment service user (customer) initiates an electronic payment transaction.

SCA rules are comprehensively applicable for card payments/transactions.  In the UK, it applies from 14 March 202. In the rest of the EU, it applies from 31 December 2020.  As per the communication, these deadlines will not change.

If you do not comply with SCA guidelines, your e-commerce card-based payment transactions (non-compliant only) will be declined. You must implement the new rules to ensure smooth and hassle-free transactions. If you are operating in Europe, Minds Task Technologies recommends you take urgent action so that you do not have to face payment declines which may otherwise impact your business ROI.

SCA integration is a technical process, and it involves analysis, roadmap definition, technological implementation, and rigorous testing. You should contact an expert SCA integration service provider to discuss the implementation scenarios. Sometimes, it may also require specific changes to your payment gateway process. If you have more queries regarding SCA migration, contact our team.
