Paya Connect Desktop (PCD)
Sage Exchange Desktop is now Paya Connect Desktop, the notes below will explain the changes for our June 17th release.
Paya Connect Desktop is the name of the product that was formerly called Paya Exchange Desktop (PED) and before that, Sage Exchange Desktop (SED).
- Product name and corresponding logos have been updated to reflect Paya Connect Desktop (PCD)
- New card reader device supported: the IDTECH SRED Key. This device allows for PCI P2PE Compliant keyed (and swiped) transactions
- Grace Period for Mandatory Releases: new releases may be optional or mandatory. In the past, if a new release was mandatory, the user had no choice but to install the new release. With this release, we introduce the notion of a “Grace Period” which will allow a user to delay the installation of a mandatory release for a pre-defined number of days
- Other: enhanced security and release functionality and upgraded to Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 and defect fixes
