Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) with Stripe

Do we support Strong Customer Authentication?

Short answer: Yes, we do.

According to Stripe:

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is a new European regulatory requirement to reduce fraud and make online payments more secure. Since SCA took effect September 14, 2019, online payments require additional customer authentication. Transactions that don’t adhere to the new guidelines may be declined by your customers’ banks. This regulation applies to transactions where both the business and the cardholder’s bank are located in the European Economic Area (EEA).

Our checkout system uses Stripe's latest products to make sure that banks that want additional credentials from your customers can get them. This means you'll have fewer declines and know that your customers are legal cardholders.
