Strong Customer Authentication-related preparations for businesses created using platforms or plugins

If you wrote any payments code or downloaded and installed a plugin to use with a partner solution, you will need to update your integration to be ready for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirements.

What You Need To Do

If you have accepted payments through Stripe that are in scope of SCA rules, you will see a list of partner solutions you use and whether or not each plugin is SCA ready in your dedicated SCA dashboard. Once a partner solution is SCA ready, we will include a link to the latest version so that you can upgrade.

If your partner solution shows “In Progress”, we are working with the developers and will contact you via email when the partner solution is SCA ready. If your partner solution shows “Not SCA-ready,” we have contacted the developers but do not have a definitive timeline for when it will be SCA ready. Please continue to check your SCA Dashboard for updates

Plugin Not Showing In Dashboard

Plugin developers may or may not include information about their plugin with each payment. If your plugin does not include this data with their payments, we will not know that you use a plugin unless you tell us.

For this reason, we ask that someone with an administrator or developer role on your Stripe account completes the questionnaire to let us know what partner solutions your business uses. We will use this information to continue to reach out to plugin developers to find out if they plan to prepare their plugin for SCA.

Resources and Integration Help

If you need help updating your plugin, or if you are not sure whether your plugin will be ready for SCA, we recommend reaching out to your plugin developer. You can also work with an SCA-ready agency to update your integration or contact us if you have more questions.

If your plugin will not be ready for SCA, we maintain a list of alternative SCA-ready partner solutions.
