How PSD2 impacts the payment landscape: PlatformsIn this podcast, we interview Fred Potter from Adyen, a leading global payment platform that was one of the first to seamlessly integrated SCA into its product. Fred shares his knowledge on PSD2 and gives practical insights for ecommerce teams to better understand what this means to them and their businesses. Good morning and welcome to the re:platform podcast. Good morning Paul. Yeah, good. So delighted to welcome Fred Potter from Adyen as our guest. Adyen is a leading payment technology provider, working across a wide range of clients, including a lot of retail eCommerce companies. So welcome Fred. Thanks for coming on. Do you want to give a bit of an introduction about yourself, your role and also Adyen? What does Adyen do and how did it get started? Yeah, sure. I basically sit on the product team at Adyen, looking after various products in the UK. Specifically more relevant to today, our 3D secure 2. Adyen itself were founded in by a group of entrepreneurs that came from a company called Bibit, that were later sold to RBS. One of the things that they wanted, or I guess got frustrated within the payments world, was the fragmentation of the payments space and the patchwork of different systems. Adyen was founded with the idea to combat that patchwork and combat that fragmentation. We are one platform that merchants integrate to, we connect directly to card schemes, and we are a processor and acquirer for merchants locally and globally, for both cards and local payment methods. Thanks for that. It gives a good flavour of Adyen and where it stands in the market. Can you give us an intro to what are the changes that are happening under the new payment services directive? What were the key changes and what do these acronyms mean? So the second payment service directive is a very chunky piece of legislation that is being implemented over multiple years. It also covers the regulation of marketplaces, and the flow of funds, and how the marketplaces should avoid being in the flow of funds for example — as well as topics such as surcharging, so essentially charging consumers for using credit cards for example. The bit I think is more relevant today is the strong customer authentication requirements. Strong customer authentication is currently defined as either 3D secure version one 3DS1 or 3D secure version two 3DS2. They are entirely different protocols. So it is what we call native authentication. So no redirections. And the authentication occurs in a two-factor form. So essentially using two different bits of information about yourself, to verify that the transaction is legitimate. The most common form of authentication being one time passwords delivered to your phone for example. Exactly yes. How can merchants debunk this to understand what the relationships are between all these different acronyms? We do expect this to eventually be classified as only 3DS2. But for the time being to allow merchants more room to be ready, currently, both versions of 3D secure one and two are classified as strong customer authentication. But the term is more general to allow for new forms of authentication in the future, rather than just saying it has to be 3D secured.
PSD2: Understanding Strong Customer Authentication
Check this page frequently as we will add new sections and topics when we receive more guidance from card schemes. If you have questions on topics not covered in this guide, contact Support Team. However, the information here should not be taken as legal advice. This guide is intended to supplement the following sources:. The Revised Payment Services Directive PSD2 is the latest version of the Payment Services Directive, a European regulation governing electronic and non-cash payments first introduced in and then updated in PSD2 includes a mandate for payment service providers to implement strong customer authentication SCA to make payments more secure for cardholders. PSD2 mandates strong customer authentication for online payments and online banking transactions. This means that before issuing banks authenticate a transaction, the shopper is required to provide two out of three factors:. For example, before an issuing bank authenticates and authorises a payment, a shopper is required to supply a one-time authentication code received on their phone something the shopper hasand a password that only the shopper knows something the shopper knows. Not all transactions are required to undergo SCA. These transactions are classified as possible exemptions, and if the issuing bank approves, may not require SCA. See Possible SCA exemptions. You can also already support 3D Secure 2 through the same redirect authentication. In the note above we explained that if you already have an existing 3D Secure 1 integration with us, you can choose to not do anything. However, we also have existing solutions to support 3D Secure 2 authentication natively within your app or payment form. If you decide to implement native 3D Secure 2 authentication in addition to your 3D Secure 1 integration, check out our 3D Secure implementation options. Before you proceed with the rest of the guide, we recommend that you use this checklist to track your PSD2 compliance progress. If you want to know how this will impact your technical implementation based on your business model, see SCA requirements based on business models. Out-of-scope transactions are transactions not covered by the PSD2 mandate. The issuing bank will not apply any strong authentication and guarantees that shoppers will not be presented with an authentication challenge, unless you specifically ask for 3D Secure in your payment request. For transactions within the scope of PSD2, you or Adyen can request for an SCA exemption if the transaction meets any of the criteria in the following list. The issuer decides if the exemption is granted or not. For some types of transaction, the issuer can grant an exemption without you or Adyen requesting for it. If you want to manage exemption requests on your own, see Managing PSD2 compliance. For technical implementation, see SCA requirements based on business models. If you have further questions on exemptions and out-of-scope transactions, contact Support Team. The PSD2 mandate is for banks, not for merchants. This means that issuing banks that approve non-compliant transactions are violating the law in their home country. As issuing banks implement protocols to comply with PSD2 SCA regulations, you as a merchant should ensure that your transactions are compliant to avoid the risk of issuing banks refusing your transactions, leading to lower authorisation rates. As a general rule, expect that issuing banks will require SCA for transactions, unless the transaction is exempted or out of scope. The following table shows common business models with the corresponding SCA requirements. For transactions that can be exempted from SCA, make sure to provide the correct payment request parameters so that we can classify and request for the most applicable exemption. If your business model falls outside of the scenarios described in the table, contact Support Team for further guidance. Online purchase where shopper agrees to store card details for future use on your website or app. This can be a zero-value transaction. For more information, refer to our Support guide. Use the following values for shopperInteraction and recurringProcessingModel parameters:. Possible values are:. If you set up a default Recurring Processing Model on your account, all transactions from your account will use the assigned default model. If you want to set the Recurring Processing Model on a transaction level, you should submit the values on your API request.

PSD2 SCA compliance and implementation guide
Platforms dominate the world of commerce. Growth for these platforms is essential. But there are many barriers in the way. As you expand into new markets you have to deal with different regulations and stakeholders consumers and users. In Europe of course, you have PSD2. So focusing on growth and business optimization becomes difficult. Most platforms collect payments on behalf of their users before settlement takes place. From January this activity is regulated in the EU. Apply for a PSP license and be regulated directly, which is very rare. Use a licensed PSP and allow them to keep control over the funds being paid out to your users. Bear in mind that the first option is expensive and extremely time-consuming. It can take months to put all policies in place. And the costs of the application process can add up to the hundreds of thousands. Even with all the time and money spent, the application is still not guaranteed to be approved. Onboarding is quick and easy with a PSP, and users can split and transfer funds when needed. From a regulatory standpoint, the PSP keeps you out the money flow for the funds owed to your users. These checks identify and verify your sellers prior to payouts. This takes the compliance burden off your shoulders. So you can continue to grow, safe in the knowledge that the PSP has every aspect of payments covered. Which means onboarding is quick and easy with a PSP, and users can split and transfer funds when needed. Adyen for Platformsour solution for platforms, offers a compliant and customizable solution.
