This is a straight copy – paste from Magento’s email. They do a great job keeping users up to date with this sort of announcement, so, we want to help get the word out.

Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for the European Union’s Payment Services Directive (PSD2) are scheduled to go into effect on 14 September, 2019.

Please take note of impacts to payment extensions designed for Magento products.

The European Union’s revised Payment Services Directive (PSD), known as version PSD2, has RTS requirements that go into effect as early as 14 September, 2019. This new directive has a significant compliance impact on most payment processing services involving credit cards or bank transfers for goods & services sold to customers in the EU.Compliance with PSD2 is the responsibility of every Merchant to whom the directive applies and Magento recommends that all Merchants take the time to review and understand the new directive; including Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirements and updates for 3D Secure 2.0 (3DS).

To ensure that customer payments will not be declined as a result of the start of PSD2, Magento is introducing the following changes and recommendations only for payment integrations that are native to Magento.

Payment Provider

Commerce 2.X

Commerce 1.X


Continue using the current Magento built-in integration, as the 3D Secure 2.0 payment flow changes are all handled by PayPal.

3DS 1.0 is supported. When and/or where use of 3DS 2.0 is required, Merchants will either need to replace PayPal with Braintree or upgrade to Magento 2.3.x.
