The expiring PrinPay SSL Certificate requires replacement.
To keep your business and customer data safe, CardConnect is making an update to one of its security protocols. This protocol requires the update of an expiring SSL certificate, called the PrinPay certificate. That means you’ll need to ensure you're using the updated SSL certificate, called the CardConnect certificate, before June 11, 2018.
An SSL certificate is a data file that protects the communication between a website and its users by verifying and encrypting information so that sensitive data isn’t intercepted by any unintended parties.
To show you an example of a valid certificate, you may have seen a reference to these certificates within a browser, if you’ve clicked the padlock icon (or similar image) in the search/address bar (which indicates it’s a secure connection).
Some of the businesses we work with are still operating on the old PrinPay certificate and need to be updated to the CardConnect certificate. So we will need to make sure you are using the correct certificate. We promise, it’s simpler than it may sound! Based on the CardConnect solutions you’re using to accept your customers’ payments, like the CardPointe Terminal, we’ve provided instructions for successfully making the update.
You must make this update before June 11, 2018.
