Hanko for E-Commerce

Biometric login and
delegated authentication
for e-commerce checkouts

Create a fast and secure checkout flow that you control and your customers will love.

The challenge

PSD2 and 3DS cripple ecommerce

Typical 3DS SCA flows reuqire customers to interact with their bank during checkout.

  • Merchants don’t have end-to-end control over the buying experience

  • Up to 20% of all 3DS purchases are not completed

  • Billions of revenue lost

The opportunity

What if ...

merchants could use a single, frictionless authentication method for both login and payment SCA?

  • “Apple Pay”-like UX on mobile and desktop

  • 100% merchant controlled

  • PSD2-compliant & fraud-safe

Reduce cart abandonment & increase revenue

Delegated Authentication:
The ideal shopping experience

Delegated Authentication with WebAuthn allows the merchant to carry out Strong Customer Authentication on their website or mobile app. FIDO2-powered WebAuthn is the SCA method of choice in the Delegated Authentication programmes of the EMVCo card schemes.

  • No need to authenticate the user twice

  • Consistent shopping experience

  • Increases customer loyalty by removing auth friction and making accounts more accessible

  • Signed-in users tend to have higher order values
