Create Payments Closure on 13th October 2022

As the recent Payment Services Directive (PSD2) brings into force new and improved customer authentication methods and regulations we must say goodbye to Create Payments and introduce a new Worldpay gateway to replace it.

The new gateway will provide full 3DS2 authentication to provide additional protection for you against fraudulent transactions and improved customer experience during this process.

We have been working closely with Worldpay over the last few months to implement this new payment facility into the checkout and it is now processing payments 

Over the past four weeks email invitations have been sent to all store owners processing debit and credit cards with Create Payments. This invitation included information on how to migrate to the replacement gateway. If you've been unable to migration before the 13th October please let us know and we can ask a member of the Worldpay team to reach out to you and begin this process. 

As the Create Payments service has been withdrawn it has been automatically turned off for stores and no new payments are being processed. All reporting for recent orders before the deadline is still still available. We will provide an update for when this information will be removed in due course. 

If you have any concerns about this process please do drop us an email and we’ll be happy to help.

The reserve fund will be maintained on your Create Payments account in case you need to use it to make a refund. When the Create Payments account is closed the reserve will be transferred back to your bank account. It may be possible to transfer the fund to your new Worldpay account and we recommend speaking to a Worldpay representative in regards to this process.

In the email Worldpay sent recently to all Create Payments users they wrote the following, “once you have migrated to the new gateway, the rates for your online gateway transactions (excl. VAT as applicable) will remain the same.”

I no longer require Create Payments and don’t wish to migrate, do I need to do anything?

No, the contract with Worldpay for Create Payments is ending on the 14th October 2022. If you do not migrate over, this will end automatically and no further action is required.
