Protect your revenue from conversion‑impacting disruptions caused by payment SCA
Signifyd’s payment SCA optimization solution allows merchants to take back their checkout experience and regain control of how and when their customers are authenticated. Don’t let PSD2’s Strong Customer Authentication requirement get in the way of positive customer experiences.
How SCA can impact your business
While SCA successfully works to deter fraudulent transactions from coming through, it also has a tendency to deter good shoppers as well. The act of multi-factor authentication takes power away from the merchant and inserts significant friction into the checkout process by requiring customers to complete inconvenient “challenges”. Instead of jumping through these authentication hoops, customers often abandon their purchases altogether, resulting in lost revenue and customer loyalty down the line for the merchant.
What are the consequences for non‑compliance?
Succeeding in a global market means keeping up with ever‑changing local regulations and tailoring experiences to satisfy a wide variety of customer expectations. Signifyd products were designed to remove the challenges of compliance with PSD2 Strong Customer Authentication in a single solution, no matter where you sell.
