Canvas Portal – Make a payment

Document purpose

This document is intended to provide a non-technical audience with an understanding of the Canvas Portal – Make a Payment element in the end-user journey.

About the Canvas Portal – Make a Payment end-user journey

Payments made from a customer account from the portal, require Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) – exemptions may apply.

Note: For illustrative purposes the Canvas portal has been used to demonstrate this SCA solution. This solution is limited to One-Time Passcode (OTP) via SMS only.

The Canvas Portal – Make a Payment Journey workflow

The Canvas Portal – Make a Payment end-user journey

Step 1 – Customer opens the Portal

The customer has already registered and performs a login using the Two-factor Strong Customer Authentication (SCA).

Step 2 – Login successfully completed

The login has been successful, and the customer is directed to the Transactions landing screen.

In the Transactions screen, select the Payments option.

Step 3 – Select bank payment type

In the Payments screen, select Bank payment to make an external transfer. For this guide, we will select UK Account as it is the most common use case.

The three available options are:

  • Canvas Account
  • UK Account
  • International

Step 4 – Bank payment screen

In the Bank payment screen, select Pay a person to add the new payee details. Note: This process remains the same even if the customer has already saved the payee’s details.

Step 5 – Add payment details

Next, add the mandatory Payee details and Payment details.

Step 6 – Confirm payment

Select Submit bank payment.

Available options before the payment is confirmed include:

  • Type of payment – Same Day Faster Payment or Next Day Faster Payment
  • Reference – an optional description of the transaction
  • Recipient Email address

Step 7 – Confirm payment (exemptions)

When Confirm Payment is selected, one of the four following exemptions determine the next steps of the journey.

  • Trusted beneficiary – continue to Step 8 – SCA not required.
  • Not trusted beneficiary – continue to Step 9 – SCA Required.
  • Low value transaction – continue to Step 8 – SCA not required.
  • Transaction value above agreed threshold continue to Step 9 – SCA Required.

Step 8 – SCA not required

If the payment meets one of the following conditions, the SCA will not be applied.

  • Trusted beneficiary
  • Low value transaction

Continue to Step 14 – Payment has been sent.

Step 9 – SCA Required

If the payment meets one of the following conditions, SCA will be required and the OTP SCA solution will be applied:

  • Not a trusted beneficiary
  • Transaction value above agreed threshold

Step 10 – SCA factor required

A further SCA factor is required here – this will be via OTP only.

Step 11 – Cancel/Authorise/Not recognised

Depending on the outcome of SCA, one of the following paths will be taken:

  • Cancel (by the customer to return to edit the payment details) – return to Step 5 – Add payment details.
  • Authorise/Recognised – continue to Step 14 – Payment has been sent.
  • Not recognised – continue to Step 12 – Try again/Maximum attempts exceeded/Cancel

Step 12 – Try again /Fail/Cancel

There are three potential outcomes from this point:

  • Try again – return to Step 10 – SCA factor required.
  • Fail – continue to Step 13 – Error screen displayed – Account blocked.
  • Cancel – return to Step 5 – Add payment details.

Step 13 – Error screen displayed – Account blocked

An Error screen is displayed after a number of failed attempts and a message is displayed instructing the customer to contact customer services.

Step 14 – Payment has been sent

The Success pop-up will appear on the Canvas Portal with a Your payment request has been successful message.
