Are embedded cards impacted by Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)?

Cards that are ‘saved’ in a merchant’s website are not considered to be embedded cards and will therefore require SCA on applicable transactions.

Where a card is securely lodged within a supplier’s POS system, these would be expected to be processed as ‘card not present’ transactions and therefore not require SCA.
