In the ever-growing world of online card payment, consumers deserve secure and convenient shopping experiences, with quick and easy purchases

With the introduction of the PSD2 regulation and Strong Customer Authentication, merchants can’t always provide a seamless checkout experience for their customers. The need for additional authentication means a switch between the merchant and issuer domain, making consumers reluctant to return to the checkout page. For your business this might lead to an increase of abandonment rates and revenue loss.

The solution can be found in delegated authentication, which simplifies the card payment flow by transferring responsibility for authentication from the issuer to the merchant. The cardholder authentication for online payments is being performed within the merchant domain itself and the customer is no longer redirected to the issuer interface, giving the merchant full control of the authentication process.

For merchants, this means offering a checkout process with reduced latency, decreased fraud for maximum security and ultimately – increased conversion rates and revenue.

For customers, authenticating in the merchant domain means that they can finish shopping with just a few steps including biometric verification in the merchant app – whether using a PC, tablet, or a smartphone.

Netcetera Delegated Auth is designed to make the authentication process as simple as possible,
providing the features that your business needs, without compromise on security and convenience.
