    I am getting emails from paypal saying that PayPal is upgrading the certificate for to SHA-256. This endpoint is also used by merchants using the Instant Payment Notification (IPN) product.


    Do I need to do anything when using your forms to sell products?

    Thank you for updating us about this.

    We have received reports from other users about this upgrade and I believe our developers have also received the same email update on Paypal.

    However, I will forward this thread to our developers, so that they can give you an update or a proper response on the actions regarding this.

    You should receive an update directly on this thread.

    Our servers are already updated with the latest security certificates that are using SHA-256 algorithm. This changes that are to be implemented by PayPal will not affect JotForm's integrations, so you do not have to be concerned. Your PayPal-integrated forms should work normally as expected.

    Best regards
