VPCart Secure Trading Payment Gateway Is Compatible With Upcoming TLS Security Updates
If you are using Secure Trading payment gateway with VPCart (V8), you would have received the notification e-mail from them recently:
Subject : Important: Upgrade to TLS 1.2 to avoid disruption to your payments
That’s why we are contacting you to let you know that if you are still using TLS 1.0 or 1.1 you need to upgrade to TLS 1.2 by 18 June 2018 as we will be disabling these protocols. After this time TLS 1.2 or above will be the only methods that you can use.
Notice for customers using payment pages: Please be aware that your customers using older browsers may experience errors in connecting. If this is the case, you’ll need to advise them to upgrade their browser to the latest version.
Notice for customers using API connections (e.g. webservices): Please be aware that if your system/application does not support TLS 1.2 or above, then you’ll need to upgrade before the 18 June 2018 in order to continue processing payments.
If you do not upgrade your customers may not be able to make payments on your website and will receive an error message.

We at VPCart have reviewed our V8 Secure Trading payment gateway module for this TLS security update and we can confirm that this gateway is using HTTP Post method which will not be affected by this update.
Therefore, if you continue to get the notification e-mail from Secure Trading, you can ignore it.
For older VPCart versions (v7, v650 etc..) that still use older version of Secure Trading gateway, we would suggest you to upgrade to our very latest VPCart version and then only use the Secure Trading gateway that you can download from https://www.vpasp.com/sales/epdownload800.asp.
