On-Demand Webinar - How merchants can turn the challenge of SCA into a business boost

Implementing Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) has complex challenges for merchants in the UK and across EU countries. What is becoming fast apparent, however, is that this is an important part of the new payments landscape and needs to be tackled intelligently.

Balancing the demands of compliance with the need to maximise the customer experience is a rigorous exercise, so merchants will need to refine their payment processes, focusing on the end user experience, and aim to complete this well before the extended EBA deadline for EU countries of 31 December 2020 which falls at the end of the peak period for online shopping.

Providing a seamless and secure experience that reduces friction, increases revenue and manages additional two-factor authentication (2FA) costs is of paramount importance. In support of SCA and 2FA, customers are now required to be authenticated by two independent factors. Typically, this is managed through 3D Secure (3DS). Other benefits of 3DS  include potential cost savings from more efficient processes, including exemption routing, preferred acquirer assessments at the transaction level.

Better use of technology, including machine learning, can facilitate incisive understanding of customer behaviours and needs.  Similarly, dynamic and concise data capture and analysis can create insights that enable merchants to minimise friction whilst also delivering faster detection of improper behaviour to target fraudsters without negatively impacting the customer experience.

EBAday 2020

EBAday 2020

25 - 26 November

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

2 - 3 June 2020

Join Finextra Research for its second Sustainable Finance Live event on 3 June 2020 to peel away the misnomers and ‘greenwashed’ ideas about sustainable finance and explore the ways the industry can take proactive steps to deliver the UN SDGs. Now open for registration, the one-day immersive event showcases a smattering of expert contributors who will introduce the day with insight into the green projects being launched across asset management and investment banking. Attendees will first Lean In to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s exploration of their experience accessing early stage investment, and Refinitiv’s discussion of the data reporting difficulties that face ESG-minded portfolio managers. Leaning Back, attendees will be given the opportunity to question industry leaders on the finer details of these concepts and projects at a series of roundtables. By the afternoon workshop session, it will be more than apparent that not all ESG polices are created equal, so it’s vital to cut through the hype to see precisely how each link in the value chain helps work towards achieving the UN SDGs. Attendees will finally Learn by Doing in the workshop by taking the key learnings from earlier sessions and carving out a real-world solution to an ESG dilemma posed at the outset of the event.
