July 1, 2010 was the mandatory deadline for all payment applications to become PA-DSS Validated. This requirement impacts all payment gateway providers, swipe terminals, and shopping cart vendors like Miva Merchant.
PA-DSS Validation is different from PCI-DSS Compliance. Both are implemented and governed by the PCI Security Council, but in order to maintain your PCI-DSS Compliance as a merchant, you must be running PA-DSS Validated (and properly configured) e-commerce software.
Last year, Miva Merchant completed its PA-DSS Audit and received its Attestation of Validation (AOV) for Miva Merchant 5.5 Production Release 7. However, Miva Merchant 4.x is not and will not be PA-DSS Validated.
As a result, Jub Jub is in the process of upgrading our Miva Merchant 4.x storeowners to the latest version of Miva Merchant 5.5. If you have a Miva Merchant 4.x store hosted with us, we will be contacting you in the coming weeks to discuss your personalized migration plan.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about the upgrade process, please contact customer support at 714-586-8500, option #1 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support,
