PayPal is requiring the use of TLS 1.2 standards as of June 30, 2017. Changes are needed to settings on your iMIS server and desktop to ensure that credit card processing can continue in the iMIS Desktop on July 1. Online processing will continue to work.
If you find that credit card processing has been discontinued in your desktop iMIS after June 30, here are possibilities for resolution:
Apply a “hotfix”
This is available to you if you are on versions 15.2 or higher
- Your IT department must update your server registry
- You must apply a “hotfix” to each desktop installation of iMIS
An April 19 Techalert from ASI provides the information you need to do these updates.
NOTE: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (a server operating system) and Windows 7 (a desktop operating system) are the oldest operating systems that can support 1.2. Also, your ASI SU fees must be up to date.
Implement CardConnect (formerly BluePay) as your payment processor
This is available to you if you are on version 10.6 or higher
This may be the most expedient means of dealing with your inability to process payments. It can be implemented in a day or two.
Get ready for an analysis of a CardConnect (formerly BluePay) installation by getting a copy of two months of merchant processing statements and submit it to Janet Davidson .
CardConnect (formerly BluePay) will eventually require TLS 1.2 standards as well, but they are not mandating this until 2018. You are buying time to allow your organization to conform to the standards.
If you are unsure of how to proceed, please contact Janet Davidson on July 5 at 817-349-7074 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
