Stripe is a popular payment method in United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, and many other countries.

Stripe uses SCA. Strong Customer Authentication, is a multi-factor authentication enforced within the European economic area. SCA is used in order to provide safe internet transactions. It has three factors of which at least two must be used:
- Knowledge - something only the user knows (password)
- Possession - something only the user has (phone or hardware token)
- Inherence - something only the user is (fingerprint or face recognition)
Enforcement of SCA requierments was launched on the 14th of September, 2019 and will take full effect by December 31 2020. The responsibility to authenticate a payment belongs to the bank and does not affect the form building process for you. Customers will need to authenticate their identity with their bank in order to finish the checkout process.
As Stripe extension allows to accept direct credit card payments, users will remain on your website during the entire payment process. Although no sensitive data is stored on your website, it is still recommended to have SSL certificate to further ensure the security of the payments.
