Tuesday, October 9th, 2012
Earlier this morning, we released a change to information contained in Order Manager export formats to greater protect your customers’ credit card information. Effective today (October 9, 2012), Order Manager order export formats no longer contain full credit card numbers or expiration dates. Notice of this change was emailed to store owners on October 1, 2012 and again today, as well as posted to the blog on October 1, 2012. This is a reminder of the changes, in case you missed the emails or the previous blog post.
This change does not affect the functionality of real-time order posts. If you have configured and are using real-time order posts, no action is required.
This change does not affect merchants processing credit cards directly in Order Manager via a FDMS compatible merchant account or PayPal. All Order Manager payment processing actions (e.g., sale, authorization, charge, refunds) continue to be available to you as usual.
What do I need to do?
If you use credit card information from any Order Manager order export format to process orders offline or perform other payment processing actions, we recommend the following:
For Yahoo! Store, Yahoo! Merchant Solutions Standard or Yahoo! Merchant Solutions Professional accounts, configure real-time order posts for your store or utilize PGP encryption to have orders delivered by email.
For Yahoo! Merchant Solutions Starter accounts, utilize PGP encryption to have orders delivered by email.
What if my store is affected and I haven’t yet made the changes?
If your store is impacted by this change and you were not able to complete updates to how you perform affected payment processing actions before today’s change, a short extension period to make updates can be requested. Please contact us if you require this short extension period.
