Mastercard previously announced an increase in the existing 3D Secure 1 (3DS1) authentication transaction fee.
Given the exceptional industry-wide impact caused by the COVID-19 virus outbreak, Mastercard has decided to postpone the effective date of this increase, from the 1st of October 2020 to the 29th of December 2020.
What does the change mean?
Currently, the 3DS1 authentication transaction fee is EUR 0.022 per authentication. This will be doubled to EUR 0.044 per authentication. There are no changes to 3D Secure 2 (EMV 3D Secure) authentications.
How will this affect you?
From the 29th of December 2020, these costs will increase for all merchants performing 3DS1 authentication on transactions.
