Due to the recent advancements in digital commerce, consumers expect real-time digital payment convenient and available across channels as more connected devices become payment devices. It offers consumers to pay in-store or online purchases in many diversified ways. The three domains secure protocol evolved to version 2.x (3DS2) supporting the development in digital payment domain and its rapid adaptation. The specification includes the provisioning of the application-based purchases enabling risk-based decisions to authenticate the consumer transactions. 3DS2 enhances consumers’ checkout experiences through out-of-band authentication. It eliminates the need for enrollment process and static password supporting non-payment activities and native mobile. The primary challenges to implement 3DS2 are dimensioning the risks, real-time variability in the risk factors, and precision to compute the accumulative risk associated with the individuals. Financial services, merchants, and consumers are enabled to connect into the blockchain network using application programming interfaces (APIs). It alleviates participants of Blockchain network from having to build out their own distributed transactions’ server nodes. This paper proposes a blockchain-driven 3DS2 service architecture framework that integrates the risk-based decisions and provides a secure communication platform in digital commerce. We illustrate the increased level of authenticity, maintainability, extendibility, and flexibility in the digital payment ecosystem with the industry case study of membership-based in-store or online charitable contribution campaigns during point-of-sale.
