Strong Customer Authentication (SCA (opens new window)), a new rule coming into effect on September 14, 2019, as part of PSD2 regulation in Europe. Stripe has released a new version of Stripe Checkout (opens new window) with fully SCA support along with Apple Pay (opens new window) and Google Pay support.

We have added support to the new Stripe Checkout workflow, however, we're still working on adding support to use Payment Intents (opens new window) (which is SCA-READY) when using the Card element.

# Stripe Checkout - Features

The Stripe team is working hard to add more features to the new Stripe Checkout, as there is not an ETA for those features, the following table illustrates the status of the Stripe Payments features if you're updating the plugin from the legacy checkout version.
