The Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) is the implementation of an EU directive that ensures the further standardization of the payments system in the European Union. The goals of PSD2 are: to create an equal playing field through regulation for providers of online payment services, to increase the security of European payments, to offer consumers more security, to promote competition in the uniform payment market to stimulate innovative online payment services and to reduce costs for consumers. Additionally, PSD2 offers third parties the possibility to access consumers’ payment accounts, but only if consumers give their consent.
As PSD2 unfolds, there happens to be a dramatic rise in demand for PSD2 solutions. This because PSD2 offers vast potential across European markets. With the increasing demand for PSD2 solutions, there is a need for transparency on the offered PSD2 services within the market.
