Charge Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) PSD2 Update

July 12, 2019

On September 14th, 2019, new requirements for authenticating online payments will be introduced in Europe as part of the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2).

Over the last few months, we've been looking into what this means for Charge, and the best ways to add support for PSD2 Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). Over the next month, we will be updating Charge to be compliant with these new requirements and will update this blog post as well as send out an email to all current Charge customers notifying you about what changes may need to be made to your implementations.

We are currently aiming to have our updates completed before the 15th of August to allow time for you to update your sites before the September 14th deadline.

As with all of our updates, we strive to reduce the amount of changes and additional development effort required during upgrades and will do as much as possible to make any required implementation changes as painless as possible.
