Payflow Encryption Method Update

Some news coming from Paypal:



As part of PayPal's commitment to security, we're upgrading the encryption methods used in Payflow. This change helps protect account information and meets the latest Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards.



Beginning August 29, 2011, Payflow will display only the last 4 digits of debit card, credit card, and bank account numbers.



For example:



Old format: 1234-XXXX-XXXX-5678



New format: 5678



What this means for you and your merchants



If a merchant has a custom Payflow integration using a reporting API, they need to make sure that it works with the new account number format. Full details can be found on X.com.



Beginning August 4, we'll email your merchants about the upgrade.



Important dates:



August 4 - PayPal to begin sending merchant notification emails.



August 29 - Account numbers change to new 4-digit format.

Will this affect the Pay Flow Pro payment gateway option continuing to work on the cart and admin?
