How to be e-commerce compliant with Strong Customer Authentication on cards

As PCM has reported recently, 40% of European banks will not be compliant with the PSD2 regulatory technical standard (RTS) on Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) by the 14th September deadline.

The major risk of this delay is the decline and cancellation of transactions, which can lead to potential financial losses for merchants on one hand and the loss of customers for banks on the other.

To avoid this situation, most of the National Competent Authorities (NCAs) in Europe are giving banks and merchants an additional transitional period to comply, ranging from 6 to 18 months. They have to implement a PSD2 Compliant solution now, to be ready for the end of the transitional period.

In today’s authentication practice, a card number combined with an SMS OTP is not SCA compliant for 3DS e-commerce payments (the card number is not considered as 1 factor). Additionally, SMS OTP doesn’t meet the best security and frictionless industry practices.

Banks need to implement secure mobile SCA solutions transforming customers’ smartphones into trusted devices (first factor) whilst managing a wide range of additional authentication factors (PIN, fingerprint, facial recognition…) that can be combined depending on banks’ rules and transactions’ risk profiles.
