- The payment gateway for businesses without Inmad will be cut off on November 24; The situation of digital currency exchanges is in an aura of uncertainty
The Electronic Card Payment Network Company or “Shaperk”, which is considered as the custodian of the country’s payment network, has recently said in a letter addressed to the payment companies that the payment gateway of online businesses without this item or with an identity that does not match the owner of the icon from November 24, i.e. three days from now. Shaperak’s side will be cut off. This is despite the fact that the legal status of digital currency exchanges has not yet been determined in the country and these platforms are not able to receive this information as in the past.
According to Aruzdigital, Shaperak said in his letter:
informs that starting from 08/24/1401, Internet terminals without this item or with an identity that does not match the owner of the icon within 6 weeks from the above date will be disabled by Shoprak and the company will be responsible for any disruptions and consequences. will be.
About a year ago, Shoprek made it mandatory for businesses applying for a new payment gateway to have this information. Now, however, with this decision, all businesses, including terminals that had previously received payment gateway without having this item, will be required to have this item to use their payment gateway and prevent it from being deactivated by Shoprak.
This decision is taken while digital currency exchanges in the country generally do not have the possibility to receive this product.

Since there is no regulation in the field of digital currencies and exchange platforms for these assets in the country, domestic exchanges should not be required to provide this information in order to have a payment gateway. However, the lack of clarity of the regulations and the decision of the responsible institutions in the field of payment and electronic commerce has caused the status of the payment gateway of digital currency exchanges to remain in an aura of uncertainty.
