Will older versions of PayFlow Direct Payments continue to work after May 31?


Recommended Posts

I have been upgrading one of my stores on a Centos 5 website  from 2.3.3 to 2.3.4. It has been a slog. I've had to upgrade PHP, CURL and OpenSSL so that my website would be TLS 1.2 compliant.  Along the way, I noticed a major change in the PayPal Payflow Payments modules, beginning with Version 3.0  which comes installed with OsCommerce 2.3.4:

  • Older Versions. The PayFlow module (and the check-out window) gets a token from PayPal which it uses to set up a window into the PayPal website. Customers enter credit card numbers on PayPal's website, not on our website, using that window.
  • Versions 3.0 and 3.1. Credit card numbers are collected on our website and passed to PayPal through a secure connection which will have to be TLS 1.2 compliant starting on June 1.

Will the earlier versions of the PayFlow Direct Payments module also have to be TLS 1.2 complaint after May 31? I have another store, on a different Centos 5 website, that I'm hoping will continue to work with PayFlow after May 31.

All Paypal versions pass the credit card information to Paypal, only the method of passing the data changes. Since Paypal is requiring that all data be passed using TLS 1.2, I believe that any module that does not meet this requirement will stop working.
