Enable 3DS2 for BlueSnap gateway integration

The 3D Secure 2.0 feature is in Limited Availability. If you want to enable this feature for your Zuora tenant, contact Zuora Global Support.

3D Secure 2.0 (3DS2) is a widely recommended solution for strong customer authentication (SCA) under PSD2. Zuora's BlueSnap, Payment API v2.0 gateway integration provides support for 3DS2 through the embedded iFrame of Payment Pages 2.0.

To comply with PSD2 using 3DS2, the following updates are required:

  1. Enable 3DS for your BlueSnap merchant account.
  2. Enable 3DS2 settings in Payment Pages.

Then you can implement and use Payment Pages 2.0 as usual. See Payment Pages 2.0 implementation overview for more information.

To comply with PSD2 using 3DS2, you must enable 3DS2 settings in Payment Pages. Then you can implement and use Payment Pages 2.0 as usual. See Payment Pages 2.0 implementation overview for more information.

The integration flow is identical to the Payment Pages without 3DS2, whereas the processing flow from the perspective of end customers is different from before. If end customers are challenged while transacting on your Payment Page, they will get held up on the challenge window before passing the validation. The callback page is displayed only when they are authenticated. A created payment method ID is also returned. 

If your customers failed the strong customer authentication, the [ThreeDs2_Authentication_Exception] error code and the actual error message are returned. The error code is common across all gateways, while the error message is gateway-specific.

Enable 3DS for merchant account

Before configuring your Payment Page in Zuora, contact BlueSnap Merchant Support to enable 3DS for your BlueSnap merchant account. After it is enabled, you should activate it in your BlueSnap Console by navigating to Settings > Fraud Settings and select Enable 3D Secure.

Enable 3DS2 settings in Payment Pages

When setting up a Payment Page, select the Enable 3D Secure 2.0 checkbox and select the created gateway instance from the Default Payment Gateway dropdown list. You can complete other settings as usual.

Payment Page configuration for BlueSnap gateway

Zuora recommends you to enable the CAPTCHA challenge feature so that you can limit the number of times end customers can attempt to submit the form after they fail the authentication. CAPTCHA challenge can be used with the 3DS2 feature to prevent potential bot attacks and reinforce the transaction security.

To enable CAPTCHA challenge, you should set a positive integer for both the Limit the number of submission before CAPTCHA Challenge and Limit the number of submission before blocking Submission fields when configuring the Payment Page.

Note: If you select a gateway integration that does not support 3DS2, the following error message is displayed when saving the Payment Page:
