Unpacking Secure Remote Commerce (SRC) – Separating Facts from Fiction


As digital commerce continues to grow at an exponential pace, merchants are quickly adapting their online and mobile channels to deliver a seamless purchase and payments experience to customers. Different merchants depend on different payments provider(s) to implement these operating frameworks for the remote digital environment, leading to varying checkout processes, forms of payments and security protocols being made available to customers. EMVCo has proposed a draft SRC specification with the objective being to facilitate a positive online buying experience for customers while reducing friction and card abandonment.

This educational webinar will provide an overview of the latest SRC specifications and the broad remit for the different players in the ecosystem (merchants, acquirers, networks and issuers). Using customer use cases, we will highlight what SRC might mean to different merchants, including those that currently have a comprehensive digital offering and are contemplating a transition to SRC, and those that are in the early stages of their digital commerce journey. We will also touch upon key considerations for merchants to move to SRC, including high level implementation requirements, and any information that remains outstanding that would need to be addressed in order to fully educate merchants on their choice of SRC implementation.
