This was a major upgrade and we had to do a major database upgrade which caused our system to be unavailable for less than 5 minutes this morning. There was a gap of about 6 minutes between the last registration before the upgrade and the first registration after the upgrade was complete.
The good news is that the new payment system is released. All new customers will need to setup their accounts in the new system. Existing customers can upgrade at any time.
The new financial upgrade will bring faster payments and better reporting to our users.
