Why are we upgrading:
Merchants and partners use HTTPS to securely connect with PayPal’s servers. PayPal requires the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to encrypt these communications. To ensure the security of PayPal systems and adhere to industry best practices, PayPal updated its services to require TLS 1.2 for all HTTPS connections. At this time, PayPal will also require HTTP/1.1 for all connections. This went into effect on June 28, 2018. The change impacted member libraries who utilize PayPal for accepting online payments.
