Verifone Will No Longer Support “PC Charge” or “Payware PC”

PC Charge has reached its end of life.

On April 6th 2015, Verifone announced to their partners that they will halt development, sales, and support of their computer-based credit card processing solutions PC Charge and Payware PC, beginning immediately and concluding in the coming months. The mailer sent by Verifone cites the changing payment and security requirements as some of the reasons for this announcement, as well as their commitment to work on other, more up-to-date payment processing solutions.

PC Charge, a server-based credit card processing middleware, is installed on a company’s local server to process and store credit card information on-site. In the event of a data breach, a server installed with PC Charge would allow hackers to gain access to full credit card numbers stored within the system. Any business using PC Charge whose server is compromised can be held liable for losses caused by use of those credit card numbers. Verifone terminated all future sale and servicing of its solutions as PCI guidelines prohibit the storage of customer’s credit card data on clients’ systems.

What Does This Mean for Your Business?

After October 1, if you use PC Charge, you will no longer receive upgrades or support for your product. In addition, your system will remain PCI non-compliant. In the event of a data breach, lack of PCI compliance puts your business at a severe risk against liabilities, and could result in steep fines by the PCI Security Standards Council.

As PC Charge and Payware PC come to an end, current clients will need an alternative to process credit cards.
