Your free terminal upgrade - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why is my terminal being replaced?

A: Your existing terminal’s security certificate will expire in 2016.  This means that if your terminal is not replaced you may not be able to authorise card transactions, which could cause significant disruption to your business.  The expiry of your security certificate may also affect your business reaching PCI DSS compliance.  For more information about how to register your compliance with us, visit
