PGP Key Rotation: Technical Changes Required for FTP Merchants

August 1, 2016

The PGP keys for Vantiv’s eCommerce platform are rotated on an annual basis.   

Action needs to be taken for any FTP merchant/presenter that uses PGP to encrypt their batch files. Please note that online processing is not affected as that method does not use PGP encryption.   

The new PGP Public Keys can be found below, currently added to our key ring, and available to use.   

The final PGP cutover will be on Monday, Sept. 12, 2016.    

If your systems are not using the new PGP Public Keys by that date, your batch files could potentially fail to process, so please make the change to your systems as soon as possible.   

If you have any questions, please contact your Vantiv eCommerce Relationship Manager, PayFac Partner Management (, eCommerce Customer Service (, or eCommerce Technical Support (
