What's this? (Overview)
The Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2 starts on September 14, 2019, in Europe, this applies to all online transactions to regulate payment services and payment service providers through the European Union and European Economic Area)
Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)
This is a new European regulatory requirement to reduce online frauds in transactions and of course, make the online ordering experience a safe one.
The SCA took effect on September 14, for this you'll need an authentication into your checkout process (just before paying with Stripe) this is called "authenticate" which essentially show the customers a 3DS (3D Secure) flow, they'll need to identify themselves before completing the purchase.
