SCA Optimisation

Managing European Electronic Payments Compliance

Payments Services Directive (PSD2), which includes Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), is a European regulation that governs electronic payment services to make payments more secure. It is key that merchants are prepared as it can take some time to re-shape payment strategies for regulatory compliance. Failure to comply with the regulations may result in declined transactions and lost business.

It is essential to understand what steps need to be taken to both comply with the regulation while optimising the consumer experience.
