SCA is a new European regulatory requirement to reduce fraud and make online payments more secure. All payment service providers are required to build additional authentication into their checkout flow once SCA goes into effect. Customers in European Economic Area (EEA) may be required to authenticate their credit cards depending on the card's issuer, starting 14 September 2019. If your credit card issuer requires authentication, review the following Authentication Process to continue paying for MongoDB Atlas seamlessly with a credit card.

Marketing emails will be sent out to affected customers announcing the policy change and the steps necessary to comply with SCA.

The following sections cover different ways to authenticate your credit card to comply with Strong Customer Authentication.

New Atlas users who do not have a payment method saved can authenticate a new credit card when paying for a database deployment on the Create a Database Deployment page. To learn more, see Create a New Database Deployment.
