We are still waiting on Chase Paymentech to provide all “additional TID’s” for the WEX entitlement.  We are receiving a slow trickle of 15 TID’s a day. If yours hasn’t been completed we can make a special request if you have a WEX payment that needs to be processed asap.

If WEX acceptance is an integral part of your business-you can choose to wait until your WEX TID is available before downloading EMV-Sha 2, but keep in mind your business is subject to undisputable charge-backs from your customers.
