Strong Customer Authentication, or SCA, is a requirement of the European Union’s Revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2) for payment service providers within the European Economic Area. SCA affects businesses based in the European Economic Area (EEA) serving customers in that region. SCA is intended to verify customer identity and reduce the number of fraudulent transactions.
Vimeo OTT uses Stripe for payment processing, and Stripe supports SCA for all one-time and recurring transactions. If you’re based in Europe, your customers will automatically see SCA enabled upon checkout, and you do not need to take any further steps.
Individuals checking out with SCA will need to check out through 3D Secure. Read more about 3D Secure card authentication.
