Due to supply-chain disruptions related to the COVID-19 virus, the PCI Council has extended the expiration date of PIN Transaction Security Point-of-Interaction (PTS POI) v3 devices from 30 April 2020 to 30 April 2021.

– Due to the situation, what we now see from PCI Council as a consequence of the Coronavirus makes sense. The business, in general, will be slowed down. Now, our responsibility as a provider is to help our customers with insight and intel so they can make decisions based on facts, says Tomas Nilsson, CTO at Westpay.
