FAQ.

Businesses may have a firewall set up to restrict internet traffic on their network for security reasons. Your firewall needs to be configured to allow communication with our datacenter for you to continue using Givex services.
Please send our latest communication HERE to your IT team. They need to follow those directions to ensure you can continue using your Givex services after July 15, 2023.

Many small businesses do not have firewalls. If that is the case, you don’t need to do anything and can continue using Givex services as normal.

If you connect to our Toronto datacenter (known as CANADA1) for processing of your Givex gift cards, loyalty or POS transactions, you may be affected. If your stores have a firewall blocking outgoing traffic, you need to ask your IT team to whitelist the new CANADA1 IP addresses by May 1, 2023. The final deadline for this is July 15, 2023.
