I ran into an issue when implementing the new payment hosted gateway with which will take more testing/debugging to find. The existing SIM payment option is working well and will continue receiving security updates from for quite some time so we can keep our current setup and test the new method after the annual conference so that users are able to get to the website and make their purchases. I will be adding to the checkout page a section that says, “After clicking Continue you will be directed to our partner payment gateway to complete your secure transaction”

I’ve updated the plugin that we utilize on the website to the latest version that enables a hosted gateway option on the website, this is different from the previous version which redirected users to an webpage to complete payment. The SIM version (old version) was deprecated in May 2017 and will receive security updates but the preferred method moving forward appears to be the Hosted Gateway as it maintains the same PCI Compliance as the previous version but the users will stay on your existing website
