I know the PayPal outage was annoying for all of their customers (us included) but it is important that we put this into perspective.
By my calculations, the 4 hours downtime would still give PayPal an overall uptime of 99.95% for the entire year.
Buses run late, planes get delayed, supermarkets have long queues and websites have unexpected downtime. I’m off to find something else to get annoyed about now :)
I hope I misunderstood what Sage Pay told me today. But if I am correct they said SEPT 2009 It’s MANDATORY TO HAVE 3D Secure implemented on checkout. If you do not your bank will issue a FINE against you for not complying with the rule. I have an active store and to have SAGE PAY go down and not have any 3D Secure checkout I am out of BUSINESS. What can we do ????? Help
Things are looking a bit grim.
We had to forget about using SagePay for a while – and just use a PayPal Payments Pro account.
But, it looks like changes are being made there too:
I need to read this again properly – I can’t tell yet if this means PayPal Payments Pro will no longer work with Shopify?
I did get some more or less encouraging feedback from Cody @ Shopify last week – but perhaps you could add a comment to this thread too:
Let’s hope this gets solved one way or the other.
