MasterCard has categorized the SCA indicators in two groups:
- Low Value Exemption
- TRA Exemption
- Trusted Beneficiary Exemption
- Secure Corporate Payment Exemption
- Merchant Initiated Transaction
- Recurring Payment
- Authentication Outage Exception
Merchants can use these indicators to inform issuers of the relevant exemption type for not applying SCA.
Mastercard announced that the use of any billable indicators will be priced at EUR 0.02 per transaction.
What do these changes mean?
Currently there are no charges for using an exemption indicator. However, from the 5th of October 2020, a fee of EUR 0.02 per transaction will apply when a Low Value, TRA or Trusted Beneficiary exemption indicator has been used.
How will this affect you?
These charges will be passed on to merchants who use one of the above-mentioned exemption indicators.
