Strong Customer Authentication

A simple solution for PSD2 compliance

We provide a simple, yet patented, solution to SCA helping you reduce the risk of identity and payment fraud and stay compliant with the PSD2.

On September 2019, a new regulation for authentication will be introduced under the new Payment Services Directive (PSD2) that will apply to online payments within the European Economic Area (EEA).

Known as Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), merchants are required to use two independent authentication elements to verify the payments they receive.

We provide a simple, yet patented, solution to SCA by implementing a 2FA process upon card verification.

Strong Customer Authentication completed

iSignthis also supports 3D-Secure, reinforced by our own MPI (Merchant Plug-in).

MPI is a module designed to facilitate 3D Secure verifications, and which can support every scheme available and applicable for 3DS (Visa, MasterCard, JCB, AMEX, Diners Club).

We additionally offer Dynamic Routing to make sure that if 3DS fails, our other SCA solutions will be triggered.

3DS might fail when a card is not enrolled for it, either because the particular issuing bank is not supporting it, or if the card is coming outside the EU where 3DS adoption is low.
