The PCI Security Standards Council is requiring all merchants accepting credit cards to migrate to the latest TLS 1.2 encryption protocol by June 30, 2018: https://blog.pcisecuritystandards.org/migrating-from-ssl-and-early-tls. In response to this, PayPal PayFlowPro will begin to cease service incrementally to merchants using outdated security protocols as a courtesy alert to remind them that they will soon permanently lose processing capabilities if they have not migrated. The first posted processing blackouts will be on:
- April 17th, 2018, at 8:00 – 8:50 AM PDT
- April 17th, 2018, at 8:00 – 8:50 PM PDT
***Merchants who have not upgraded to TLS 1.2 will not be able to process during the 50 minute timeframes above.***
Users should verify their entire payment ecosystem is TLS 1.2 compliant to avoid the outage, including reaching out to Nodus to ensure that their payment software has been upgraded.
