Strong Customer Authentication – New Requirements for Online Payment Processing – mandatory from 1st January, 2021
The EU Payments Services Directive 2 (PSD2) now requires Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) to be used for all electronic transactions to reduce online fraud. This requires all online providers to request additional cardholder data which is sent to the cardholders’ bank for authentication during payment processing. As a result, a new page has been added to the Fire Service payments process to capture such cardholder data – E.g. address, email address and phone no.
The information entered will be verified by the cardholders bank to ensure that the card is being used by the correct cardholder. If you experience any difficulties while authorising your payment to us, please contact your bank as you may need to update your cardholder details with them.
