New Stripe release supporting PSD2 (SCA)

We are pleased to release the new stripe extension version 6.0 just in time for the implementation of the new European PSD2 payments directive that enters into force on the 14th September.

The new release uses the Stripe Elements library which simplifies PCI compliance and allows SAQ-A certification for most sites. The extension now supports 3d secure and other client-side authentication/validation methods.

Stripe and SCA payments

With the September 14th deadline for SCA payments and Stripe increasingly reminding users about their PCI compliance many of you will be wondering what is happening with the new Stripe extension that was funded in record time through the CiviCRM Make it Happen programme.

The good news is that it is nearly ready!

 

Sending emails with personalised links / Opt-in to communications

I've had a few requests from clients recently with queries around updating contact details and permissions with the new GDPR data protection legislation coming into force in Europe in May.

As a result I've developed two very simple extensions which I'd like to share:

Contact Checksum

This extension provides a simple UI under the contact summary via Actions->Contact Checksum.

When opened a simple UI is displayed with information and example links to use in emails when sending personalised / "update your details" links from CiviCRM.

Smartdebit for CiviCRM 4.7 (Direct Debit Payments)

I'm please to announce the release of a new Smart Debit extension for CiviCRM 4.7.

The new extension is based on the vedaconsulting (https://vedaconsulting.co.uk) extensions for previous releases of CiviCRM but is rewritten and includes a number of new features and enhancements.  Development and Testing has been funded by Circle Interactive (https://circle-interactive.co.uk) and implemented by MJW Consulting (https://www.mjwconsult.co.uk).
