Upgrading from 2.21 to 3.00

When upgrading your website to Sage Pay version 3.00 you will need to make substantial changes to the payments information that is sent from your website to us.

What changes will I need to make?

In order to process payments on your website, four pieces of information are sent from your website to us. These are known as fields and are as follows:

  • VPSProtocol
  • TxType
  • Vendor
  • Crypt

You will not need to remove any of these fields from your website, but you will need to make a lot of changes to those fields in order to successfully upgrade from version 2.21 to 3.00

There are three options available to you to complete the upgrade:

  1. Start again with Sage Pay

Due to the number of changes you will need to make to upgrade your website it may be easier to start again with Sage Pay.

Making the changes to your current version may be difficult due to the code, the way the website is integrated with Sage Pay, and due to the sheer volume of changes that are required to upgrade.

You can download a copy of the Sage Pay version 3.00 guide which will provide you with all the tools needed to integrate your site with us.

  1. Make the changes to your website

Although a lot of changes are required to upgrade your website you may prefer this option. 

Firstly remove any fields that are not included in Sage Pay version 3.00. Below is a list of the fields that are required for version 3.00. If you have any additional fields these will need to be removed.

Next, upgrade your website so that all of the fields in Sage Pay version 3.00 are captured and sent to us when a payment is processed. See our Sage Pay version 3.00 Integration Guide for details on the requirements for each field.

Once the changes have been made the upgrade has been completed.
