3DS2 - what is it and why is it important for your business?

At Bizzon we are committed to providing our merchants (and their customers) with the highest levels of payment security. In addition to being PCI DSS 3.2.1 compliant, we’re delighted to announce that we now support 3D Secure 2.1 across all e-commerce payments and digital ordering works.

What is 3D Secure v2? 

3D Secure v2 (3DS v2) - an enhancement on 3D secure - is an authentication protocol used for online card payments. Designed to create a frictionless payment flow across different devices, 3DS aims to reduce fraud and enhance security, with version 2 further reducing friction during customer authentication. 

What are the benefits? 

Guests will enjoy simpler and faster authentication in addition to better UX on mobile devices and merchants will see increased acceptance due to smoother UX. Merchants will also be able to facilitate merchant-initiated transactions.

Zdeslav Vojković, Head of Payments at Bizzon says: “Payment security is a critical component for any operator. Meeting the Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirements in the UK and EU since the beginning of 2021, is an important milestone for Bizzon. It underpins our commitment to providing our merchants with a flexible, secure and fully mobile payment platform.”
