There's no need to be SCAred of SCA

There's no need to be SCAred of SCA


July 2021


If you’re in the Hospitality or Travel trade, your year has been dominated by two C’s; COVID-19 and to a much lesser extent compliance. If it wasn’t for the virus, compliance might have received a bit more scrutiny, because it’s certainly causing a few headaches.

SCA can be complex

 

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is all about boosting security by asking for more customer identification. Unfortunately, the regulations have hit the Travel and Hospitality industry the most. Anyone who makes or receives online payments, online travel agencies (OTAs), booking engines and those using Property Management Systems (PMS) have all felt the pain. There has been a long to-do list – understanding what’s changing and when, upgrading IT systems, changing transaction flows, educating your team, etc.

 

So how can you protect yourselves and your guests, while minimising disruption and still avoid missed bookings or declined payments?

 

At the end of the day, guests want to enjoy quick, secure and easy online bookings and payments; some like to pay in advance; or leave a 20% deposit. SCA rules shouldn't get in the way of you offering your guests flexible options when they come to stay.

 

Help is at hand

 

Firstly, getting the latest security checks in place across your online channels is a must. It’s called 3D secure. It’s the pop-up you see online from your issuing bank when you make a payment. And it’s been there for years, but now it’s been turbo charged with speedier features to make it even easier to check out online. Your guests are used to the payment process, so they’ll feel happier seeing that online security is in place.

 

Chatting to your eCommerce providers and booking engines will let you know what they’re doing about SCA compliance. They should have your guest interests at heart, as well as yours. Getting Terms and Conditions up to date now ensures everyone is up to speed.

The power of tokens

 

So, what else can ease those SCA headaches? Some relief can be found in the payment token!

 

When your guest makes a booking and supplies payment details upfront or at check-in, their data can be securely stored for future use with a token in your PMS.

 

As long as you’ve got top notch Ts & Cs available, and an authenticated payment, you’re free to charge their card on check-out. And if they spend throughout your hotel in the bar or the restaurant, you’ve got their details on file. So why not make it easy for them? With tokenisation your guests will hardly notice anything’s changed.

 

Taking the pain out of payments

 

What about No Shows? We know it happens. And deposits payments?

 

With changes to lockdown measures and travel restrictions still on-going, it could be all the more important to have these eventualities sorted out, and up to scratch when it comes to SCA rules.

 

A simple payment request can be sent out via email or SMS message direct to your guest to guarantee their confirmation. They can easily and securely pay on this web link through their own device. Which is just the kind of smooth and convenient payment moment they’ll be expecting.

 

Nothing to be scared about

 

Like many industry overhauls, change takes time. And if you’re based in the United Kingdom or Switzerland you have the advantage of more time and learning from other markets, as the deadline has shifted to 2022.

 

Let us take care of the SCA challenges so you can continue to offer your guests an effortless and secure payment experience. Our technology does the hard work, making authentication easy and keeping payments ticking over.
