Paypal no longer allowing transactions using SSLv3

  • Updated


When using Paypal as a payment provider, the checkout process is unable to complete the transaction.

Paypal is no longer accepting transactions from sites that use SSLv3 due to security concerns. For more information, see  .

The workaround is to use the ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol Property on your checkout page to force the use of TLS instead of using SSL. An example would be:

Namespace: System.Net
System.Net.ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Tls; 

This forces TLS instead of SSL V3.
