Upgrade your Shopify Payments


Shopify is deprecating their original HPSDK for payment providers in favor of their new Payment Provider App Installation, which mean you might be seeing the following in your Shopify back office.


On January 1st, OpenPath released a new version of our Encrypted Checkout call OpenPath Payments which all new merchants have been installing and using, which also means it has been tested and is stable. In addition, this new version also supports new features such as 3D Secure 1.0 and 2.0 and SEPA payments for Europe.

The following document outlines the steps required to upgrade to this new version. This upgrade can be performed in about 10 minutes and requires now downtime to your current Shopify store.
