Leeds, 14th August 2019: As a Nochex merchant you will know that all the payments you receive via our service are protected by 3D Secure (3DS) authentication. 3DS is a set of rules laid down by the card schemes, Visa and MasterCard, to protect merchants and consumers from online fraud.
You might also be aware that 3DS was due to be upgraded. The improvement – known variously as Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), 3DSecure2, and the Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) – was due to come into force in the UK on 14 September 2019. Read more about 3D secure payment here.

Nochex has tested the solution with a large merchant, and is now bringing the service to the attention of a wider audience.

Since 13th January 2018, it is illegal for merchants to apply surcharges based on the way that customers pay.
