What Do i Need To Do?
If you rent your terminals* from us, or use Global Iris to accept card payments on the internet, you won’t need to do anything as we’ll automatically update these over the coming months so that they’re compliant with this vital requirement.
If you own your own Point of Sale (PoS) equipment, rent card terminals from a supplier other than us or use a Payment Service Provider (PSP) to accept card payments on the internet, you’ll need to contact your supplier to check that your equipment meets the SHA-2 certification and the TLS 1.2 protocol. If they don’t, you’ll need to get your equipment updated with these protocols as soon as possible and by the industry deadlines, at the latest.
*You must keep your terminal plugged in and switched on overnight, and ensure that you complete your end of day, so that we can update the software to ensure it’s compliant. Failure to do this will result in your terminal not having the latest software installed and impact your ability to accept and process card payments.
