The Russian invasion of Ukraine has also had an impact on payment transactions. The major card companies Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Diners /Discover have stopped payments from cards issued in Russia in the next few days. PayPal is also no longer making payments from Russian accounts. Therefore, you should expect an increase in the number of declined transactions.
If you want to actively restrict transactions from Russia or Belarus beyond the measures taken by acquirers and card companies, we will be happy to support you.
