PayPal Modification SSL V3 to TLS

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


Since the SSL v3 issue (also known as POODLE) was identified on October 14, PayPal has decided to

completely disable SSL 3.0 support at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Standard Time on December 3, 2014. 


POODLE is an internet security vulnerability that impacts the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 protocol, 

which was designed to ensure secure connections when surfing on the Internet.


As a consequence all PayPal merchant customers using PrestaShop need to update their PayPal 

integration by upgrading their PayPal module on PrestaShop before December 3rd disable SSL 3.0 for their client interactions. 


If you do not upgrade your PayPal module on PrestaShop by this date, you may face interruptions to 

your ability to accept payments with PayPal.


To make sure your integration is protected against this vulnerability and to keep accepting PayPal 

payments beyond this date, you need to upgrade your PayPal module to version 3.8.0 by following 

these steps: 


Users of version 1.5 and 1.6 of PrestaShop

1- Go to PrestaShop back office in the list of modules installed

2- Click on the « Update it » button next to PayPal module  

If this button doesn’t appear, please follow the same steps as the ones described below for “users of version 1.4 de PrestaShop”




The upgrade to version 3.8.0 will then complete.  If it doesn’t, please follow the steps below. 


Users of version 1.4 of PrestaShop


1. Go to the PrestaShop Addons website  and download the latest version of the PayPal module (version 3.8.0)

2. You need to carry out a manual update of the module. Please go to the “Modules” section in the Back Office of your store 

3. Click on “Upload the module from your computer” , you should get the screen below: 





4. Insert the downloaded file in zip format

5. Click on « Upload this module »

The upgrade to version 3.8.0 will then complete.
