Firms must soon put more stringent fraud decisioning processes in place, and strong customer authentication (SCA) protocols must be built into checkout flows for online transactions that begin in Europe.

        Value of Pre-Authorization

        The value of pre-authorization screening in the payments ecosystem of today. Ekata’s definition of pre-authorization is the time period after payment details have been submitted, and before sending to the issuer for authorization request. This means only good transactions are sent to the issuer. To pre-authorize transactions means to be proactive rather than reactive. It is innovative because it works as a dynamic layer to help prevent fraud and improve customer experience.
