Exemptions from strong customer authentication

Exemptions from strong customer authentication

During online payment processes, you may find that you do not always need to confirm the transaction with strong customer authentication. This is because there are vendors or forms of payment that do not require approval with strong customer authentication. 

Online purchases in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) 

According to the European Union directive, the changes made in the authentication process apply to purchases in the case of which the online acceptance point (merchant) is located in one of the member states of the European Economic Area.  

Therefore, if you purchase an item in the web shop of a vendor based in a country outside the EEA, for example in America or Asia, you will not always be required to approve the transaction using the new authentication process as such vendors are not subject to the regulation.

Online purchases in EEA member countries

Similarly, in the case of small-value online transactions, i.e. purchases of a value below €30, with traders based in an EEA member country, the new authentication process will not be required. If, however, the aggregated amount of several consecutive transactions below €30 reaches €100, strong customer authentication must be applied, i.e. the transaction must be approved by the new authentication process.
