SIG: Charities

Strong Customer Authentication remains the hottest payments topic of the moment and not without reason! With the 14th September implementation deadline fast approaching and irrespective of the much rumoured potential transitional approaches to enforcement by several competent authorities, SCA remains a challenge and one that could have a significantly challenging impact for the third sector.

As currently prescribed, the need for SCA for all remote transactions renders investment in contactless only payment solutions worthless as they do not meet the requirements of being able to provide for a second factor authentication method. Similar models in parking have been provided with specific exemption from SCA, but this is not currently the case with charitable donations via this method of payment.

As part of this SIG, we will be focusing on how we can put forward a bullet proof case to the competent authorities across Europe, such as the FCA in the UK, to encourage them to provide a similar exemption as that in place for parking, for charitable donations via contactless only terminals.

SCA does not only apply to contactless payments, but also to all customer not present transactions. We will be providing a clear set of guidance on what charities and their service providers need to have considered and put in place, in partnership with their solutions partners and acquirers by 14th September.

We will also cover recent updates to the PCI SSC’s guidance on telephone-based payments amongst other things.

As we pull together the full final agenda, we’re keen to hear from you as to any key areas of challenge – or opportunity – that you’re facing in relation to payments right now, that you’d be interested to have discussed, or, if there’s any area that you’d like an update on – or to provide an update on. Please contact Paul at or 07785 502605 if you have any topics you’d like to cover/see covered.
