Uber has appointedÂ payments platform Adyen asÂ initial solutions provider for 3D secure (3DS),Â anÂ XML-based protocol designed to be an additional security layer for onlineÂ creditÂ andÂ debit cardÂ 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 Adyenâ€™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.
â€śWe 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,â€ť concluded Sam Halse, COO of Adyen.
