Important Announcement for Merchants using the Wells Fargo/CyberSource Payment Gateway

CyberSource has announced September 30, 2014 as the retirement date for its Hosted Order Page and Silent Order Post solutions. After this date, you will no longer be able to use the legacy Hosted Order Page/Silent Order Post solutions to accept payments on your website.

The discontinued solutions are replaced by the Secure Acceptance Web/Mobile and Secure Acceptance Silent Order Post solutions. It is critical that merchants plan and execute your migration from the legacy solutions as soon as possible.

CyberSource has created a Migration Resource Center, where merchants can access tools and guidelines for a smooth transition.
