Did a comet knocked down your X-Cart already? I mean are you not able to process payments now?

Also, the PDF file I referred to says "VISA all regions". It is all very misleading.

Not yet.. banks are closed today though for Canada Day.
What it does however is open the door for fines, restrictions or worse.

So far my Qualiteam installed XPayments is crashing on my server and unfortunately it takes a day between any correspondence. It would be nice to be able to live chat or something to dramatically speed up the process.

I updated http://forum.x-cart.com/showthread.php?p=291300#post291300 to reflect this information. However, still no clear vision of the process from VISA. One VISA document says for existing merchants "All regions 7/1/2012", other one says "Canada 7/1/2010"

See http://forum.x-cart.com/showthread.php?p=291300#post291300
That bulletin is only discussing regions outside of Europe, U.S. and Canada. You missed a couple of key notes in that bulletin:

"Note: Visa Europe operates as an independent company and licensee of Visa Inc. for business operations in Visa Europe markets. Visa Europe is aligned with the Visa payment application security framework, but has implemented its own set of mandates to drive compliance validation with the security initiatives detailed in this article."

"Note: These mandates will not supersede any applicable earlier deadlines and related enforcement programs already in place for the U.S. and Canada, which require acquirers to ensure that their merchants and agents use PA-DSS compliant payment applications by 1 July 2010."

Today (July 1, 2010) is still clearly the PA-DSS mandate deadline for the U.S. and Canada.

Please also update your closed thread on the subject stating the incorrect 2012 date as well. http://forum.x-cart.com/showthread.php?p=291300

And, please read the entire document you are quoting before drawing conclusions and posting incorrect information in the future! The history of PCI-DSS and PA-DSS compliance for X-Cart has been full of inaccurate statements such as this being thrown out by Qualiteam. It really needs to stop.

Ralph, I changed wording to say this:
Quote:
According to VISA, existing merchants outside USA, Canada and Europe are to be at full compliance by July 1, 2012, not July 1, 2010!

At the same time I want to note that the PDF is published at usa.visa.com and says exactly this:
Quote:
These mandates apply to all Visa regions

So the best will be to check with your region VISA web-site. I'll be adding new information about regions at the blocked thread.

I would recommend you contact VISA Europe at the email address in the bulletin and get the official word from VISA Europe as they seem to publish less information on their web site. Qualiteam should know these dates, not be told them by customers!

Note the US PA-DSS Mandate page hasn't changed and still says 7/1/2010 same as Canada.

Also, the PA-DSS mandate FAQ clarifies what VISA refers to as regions in the June 2009 bulletin.

Taking a quote out of context frequently leads to misunderstanding. You must read the entire bulletin. Its setting a final deadline for all regions under VISA, Inc. control (VISA Europe is a separate company). It is not extending deadlines for any region that already has an earlier deadline. The U.S. deadline of 7/1/2010 ensures compliance by the date in the PDF as it is not later than 7/1/2012 so it is not in conflict with the above quote.
