Stripe API Version Upgrade

Stripe has recently taken steps to phase out older security protocols (SHA-1, TLS 1.0, and 1.1) that are much weaker than what is now currently being used now(SHA-2 and TLS 1.2). Basically these updates help insure security when capturing payments.

What this means for you:  You will need to check and make sure that the API key in your InkSoft account has using the most up-to date API key. This will help prevent customers from running into TLS errors when checking out.

This guide shows you how to check and upgrade to the latest version of Stripe's API.
