SCA: Crazy Name, Potentially Significant Impact

Debit and Credit Cards

Strong Customer Authentication is coming. This is going to change the way a large number of credit and debit card transaction happen – especially online – during this year.

We’ll be working with all of our clients that take payments on ensuring their systems are compliant – which should be led by the payment processor in each case, and will, hopefully, require minimal changes on the part of the client, but we’ll watch and learn…

In the case of our clients using GoCardless (the DD based payment / donation processor) it is unlikely they will see any changes (as they are not card based payments). However, they’ve written a blog post explaining more about how they expect SCA changes to effect their – and other – payments in future.
