Paymex announce imminent closure
Overnight Paymex, a New Zealand based credit card processing facility announced imminent closure of it's service. This affects some of our customers and we'll be contacting them shortly to help them switch to one of our other credit card processing providers. Below is the announcement from Paymex:
Why is Paymex doing this?...
This decision has been predominantly based on two factors: expected processing volumes over the last few months have not been achieved and a substantial increase in resource cost for monitoring and dealing with suspicious and fraudulent transactions and account holders.
So, what do I need to do?...
You will need to make alternative arrangements for accepting credit card transactions if Paymex is your only transaction method. If you have other processing methods then you will need to remove Paymex as a payment option in your system.
Will I lose the money in my Paymex account?
No, your money is safe. You can withdraw it as per the usual withdrawal process up until *Friday 23rd July 2010*.
What happens if there is a chargeback after the site is gone?
You will continue to be responsible for any charge backs on your account *up to 90 days after 16th July 2010*. Paymex will continue to operate as per usual for dealing with charge backs and customer queries up until the end of October on the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
