Improved 3-D Secure data integration in the “Authentication Only” process

We have made a change to the Sips Office connector in order to facilitate the integration of the cardOrder function (authorisation request) in the event of 3-D Secure authentication carried out by a PAT other than WL Sips (all the details are in our 3-D Secure guide).

This results in making the “securityIndicator” field optional in the event that authentication is not performed by WL Sips and by adding a new field named “holderAuthentProvider” and which must be populated.

Urbanisation of the authenticationData container

The authenticationData container currently contains both input data and data used to convey an authentication result (3-D Secure, ApplePay). Theis result data can be populated in the cardOrder input for some use cases (if the authentication is external to WL Sips for example) but is not to be populated in the cardCheckEnrollment input.

To avoid any confusion regarding the data in the authenticationData container, the latter has been revised:

  • The authenticationData container will eventually only contain data related to the rules to be applied for authentication.
  • A new container named authenticationResult is created to specifically contain the data of the authentication result.

Ecards detection

The Sips Paypage and Sips In-App connectors now allow you to know whether the card used for payment is an Ecard or not. The information is returned in the “virtualCardIndicator” response field.

Frictionless cases testable on the test environment

In order to facilitate the frictionless integration within the 3DSv2 framework, you will now have the opportunity to test the various cases on the test environment.

Available in the “test cards” part is the detailed information to simulate the various values returned depending on the frictionless type:

  • frictionless granted by the issuer for a small amount
  • issuer TRA type frictionless
  • frictionless request without specifying the reason for exemption by the merchant (NO_CHALLENGE)
  • frictionless request with reason for acquirer TRA exemption by the merchant (NO_CHALLENGE_TRA_ACQ).

Generalisation of the cancellation operation option of a transaction in VALIDATION mode

This functionality, which was already available since release 20R3 on demand, is now generalized.

In fact, if you are in VALIDATION mode, you have the possibility to cancel a transaction that is in the TO_VALIDATE status. You therefore no longer need to validate the transaction before having the possibility to cancel it.

The cancellation operation can be total or partial and concerns all means of payment allowing this cancellation.

The total cancellation operation generates a reversal request to reset the cardholder’s authorisation limit (if this functionality is supported by your acquirer).

Regulatory changes

GDPR compliance - Data retention period

As part of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and in order to be in compliance with it, the inactivity of a shop will lead to an alert being sent to us. By inactivity we mean that transactional flows have ceased for 18 months.

You will be consulted by your usual contact, if such inactivity is noted on one of your shops, so as to get your agreement for its closing down and the deletion of the information associated with it (which takes place 30 days after the shop has been closed).
