New regulations of the EU directive Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) are scheduled to come into force that will introduce permanent changes to online shopping. The regulation will start enforcing multi-factor authentication. That means, instead of only entering for instance a password when buying in an online shop, customers will often have to authenticate themselves in another way – for example via SMS, or via activation emails.

The regulations are scheduled to take effect on 14 September 2019.

There are two types of registration authorization:

Manual authorization:      

This should be done by the e-shop owner through the ‘Customers’ tab of the backoffice.

E-shop owner is notified with an email that a candidate customer is registered his/her information and is asked to authorize the customer after evaluation.

There are two ways to authorize: Clicking to the activation link provided in the email, or manual authorization through the Backoffice Customers tab.

Automatic authorization through activation email by customers:

Customers are asked to click on the activation link created for them with an email automatically sent to their registration email address.

Compatibility: Prestashop 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7
