If you are using 2Checkout Payment Gateway with VPCart then, you would have received the notification e-mail about an upcoming 2Checkout Security update :


Dear Valued Merchant,

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council (SSC) has released its latest data security standard (DSS) 3.1, which mandates all businesses move away from Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) web encryption because it's no longer considered strong enough. Therefore, starting June 1, 2017, 2Checkout will no longer support SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0. This means that all API requests, Vendor Admin sessions and standard checkout processes will need to use TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2.

As a Merchant, please check to ensure your connectivity will not be affected - you may need to make updates to your servers, programming language and even the browser you are using immediately. Supported browsers are outlined below. For more details on this change, please check out this blog post.

The 2Checkout Sandbox environment, sandbox.2checkout.com, has already been changed to support only TLS1.1 and TLS1.2. Tests can be performed today with your shopping cart integration and API calls against that environment prior to the June 1st deadline.

Please check your system to see if any action is needed to support this update. Your applications may be unable to connect to 2Checkout services after the changes are implemented in production.

Integrations Team



We at VPCart have reviewed and tested our 2Checkout Payment Gateway module for this 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 2Checkout, you can ignore it.
