Impact Statement

Storman v10 is a major release and as such, has a number of impacts that need to be considered:

  1. In Version 10, we no longer support merchants that do not “tokenise” their credit cards. Tokenizing is a secure way of processing your customer’s credit cards and bank accounts. Instead of insecurely sending their information over the internet!
  2. If you remain with or on a payment provider that does not tokenise credit cards, Storman v10 will not support and will not process Transactions/Payments for your customers. Unsupported merchants are:
    CTel, Verisign, Cheq, Payment Express, NAB, Advam, AuthorizeNet.
  3. To be PCI compliant and ensure you and your customers data is secure, credit cards are now encrypted in Storman. This means they will no longer print on the autopay report during daily processing.
  4. It is no longer possible to view an agreement's credit card number, from the agreement screen.
  5. If your website communicates to Storman, or you would like it to please contact us before upgrading to Version 10. You web developer may want to view our API documentation.
  6. When processing a moveout, if a storer has future billed rent. Storman will now warn you, and offer to automatically undo last charges for you before moving out.
  7. Staff and Storman user passwords are now encrypted, masked (*****) and case sensitive.
  8. If you are using Windows 10, you no longer need PDF Creator or PDF Printer 4. Storman now works with Microsoft's own PDF Prinrter.
