How do I limit impacts to my business?
Skipjack realizes that each of our integration partners is unique, and their application and implementation vary by client, and those implementations methods are often unknown to Skipjack. You should contact your bankcard merchant services provider, or third-party integrated service provider to discuss alternate payment platform options. Part of decommissioning Skipjack includes a commitment from Skipjack and your providers to offer viable alternatives to make the migration process easier.
Skipjack will provide additional notifications as we progress towards the September 1, 2016 deadline to keep everyone informed of the discontinuation in these services.
