Are you currently using previous generation Verifone terminals? Then you should be planning to update your terminal fleet, for reasons of PCI compliance. As part of this process you also need to migrate from our classic libraries to Terminal API. This supports the latest terminals that have up-to-date PCI certifications.
Why eVo terminals are discontinued
If you are currently using payment terminals from the Verifone Verix range — known as eVo terminals — you need to update your terminal fleet. In a few years, we will no longer allow transactions with eVo terminals because:
The PCI security approval of eVo terminals is expiring.
Most eVo terminals have PTS PCI 3 approval: they are compliant with version 3 of the PIN Transaction Security (PTS) requirements of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council. The Council has determined that PTS PCI 3 expires on 30 April 2021 and that PTS PCI 3 devices must be retired by April 2023.
Some eVo terminals have PTS PCI 4 approval, which expires in April 2023.
- Verifone will stop delivering, supporting, and repairing eVo terminals.
|Model||PCI approval||Expires||End of repairs||No more transactions|
|e315, MX925, VX675, VX680,
VX820, VX820 Duet
|PTS PCI 3||April 30, 2021||March 31, 2023||March 29, 2024|
|e355, VX690||PTS PCI 4||April 2023||March 31, 2023||March 29, 2024|
Remaining PCI compliant
To remain PCI compliant, you need to switch from eVo terminals to the Verifone Engage range — known as VOS terminals. VOS terminals have PTS PCI 5 approval and offer excellent alternatives to eVo:
|Type||eVo Verix terminals||VOS Engage terminals|
|Countertop||VX820, VX820 Duet||P400 Plus or V400c Plus|
|Mobile||e315, e355||e280 or e285p|
|Portable||VX675, VX680, VX690||V400m, or V240m Plus for Brazil|
Migrating your integration
When you switch from eVo terminals to newer models, you can initially continue using a classic library. But eventually you also need to switch from using a classic library to Terminal API. Because of the advantages of Terminal API, we are discontinuing the classic libraries. This means that after 31 March 2024 it will no longer be possible to make transactions through a classic library.
