Payflow TLS 1.2 Endpoint Ppgrade
Security and safety are top priorities for PayPal, but being a good partner to you is equally important. We announced last year our plans to strengthen our Payflow integration as part of a broader infrastructure security initiative. We’re now sharing more details with you.
In preparation for the upgrade, you’ll be able to test your integration in the Payflow Pilot environment after February 15, 2017. We strongly encourage you to adjust your configuration and test your integration prior to the Payflow Production upgrade currently scheduled starting after June 30, 2017.
BEDSLIDE - Client Testimonial
"The best thing out of everything was that our sales went up. The new site had a better design, the checkout process was better, and ultimately achieved all of our goals. That site has been up for a year and a half and we’re very happy with it, it’s still awesome." - Jake Plappert
