Paymark has announced that after consultation with key industry parties, the compliance upgrade deadline of 30 April 2020 has been extended.
Paymark previously advised many of their customers that their terminal required an upgrade to comply with current security requirements, and/or because their terminal's software was approaching it's sunset date.
However, due to the circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, a sunset date extension has been granted for terminals with 2014, 2015, or 2016 software. This means these terminals no longer need to upgrade by 30 April 2020. This covers the majority of terminals that still require an update in the market.
We have already upgraded most of the terminals in our fleet that needed an update to remain compliant with Paymark security requirements. More information is available for customers here.
A new deadline date has yet to be announced.
