A couple of clients using PayPal have received an email regarding a new European Union directive.
Some info from the email –
As a business accepting card payments, your online checkout will need upgrading to comply with a new European Union directive requiring Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). The directive applies from 14 September 2019, but card issuers are working towards SCA by April so that their systems are fully operational by the deadline.

As I understand it, no changes are required if users are redirected from your website to PayPal (hosted payment integration) but changes are required if you accept card payment on the actual website (Direct or in-line payment processors)
PayPal is one of the core payment processors in CiviCRM and the in-line option is now also compatible with webforms so I’m guessing this will affect many.
How do we move forward to be ready by the deadline as transactions will be declined if no action is taken?
I’m guessing this will also affect other in-line payment processors?
