I just got a notice from PayPal that, starting in June 2017, versions older than TLS 1.2 and HTTP/1.1 will not be able to communicate with Payflow.  Are we covered in Version 2.3.4?  How about my stores that still run 2.3.3 - will I need to upgrade to 2.3.4 before June?

I believe if you are using the PayPal App and are up to date with it you should be fine.

If you can connect to the sandbox server now then you will be able to continue to connect to the live server with TLS v1.2. The sandbox server already requires TLS v1.2 connections.


If you cannot connect to the sandbox server, it is recommended to upgrade to the latest PayPal App version which has a configuration parameter to test and force TLS v1.2 connections.


More information about the TLS v1.2 setting in the PayPal App can be read at:

The server OS sets the level of encryption possible and you can test your ssl at https://www.ssllabs.com/
