For us it is only MySagePay which is down, which is for taking payments manually over the telephone, releasing payments and repoting... However our web-site is still accepting payments via SagePay without issue, which for us is the most important aspect.

They're history for our shopping cart - the moment I can switch providers, bye bye SagePay. Others may have, but I never had a problem with the old Protx company, but I did expect problems once they were bought by out Sage, I just didn't realise how many there would be.

Yet Another Alternative Gateway Provider

We've been using SecureTrading at work for many years, both their hosted SSL payment pages and we've been experimenting with their API (not for the faint-hearted). Probably not the cheapest around and the rates aren't the best either, but they're Rock. Solid.

They're also capitalising on the SagePay exodus on their Twitter feed :D
