Uber has appointed payments platform Adyen as initial solutions provider for 3D secure (3DS), an XML-based protocol designed to be an additional security layer for online credit and debit card transactions.
3D Secure 2 (3DS 2) is a new technology standard developed by EMVCo, a consortium of financial companies, that enables strong customer authentication to comply with regulations like PSD2 in Europe. It introduces a new approach to authentication through secure data sharing, biometric identification, and an improved mobile-friendly customer experience.
“Uber is excited to be expanding our payments platform with Adyen. We are focused on maintaining a seamless and rewarding payments experience for our consumers, and we chose Adyen’s 3DS solution based on the innovative product features, the ease of implementation, and the expertise of their team,” said Marco Mahrus, head of payments partnerships of Uber.
“We look forward to expanding our partnership with Uber and becoming their first global partner for 3DS. We have made a significant technology investment in our 3DS solution and merchants like Uber are leveraging our full-service capabilities to be prepared for evolving regulatory demands without sacrificing their customer experiences,” concluded Sam Halse, COO of Adyen.
