Not that nobody hasn’t warned about the discontinuation of the Dynamics GP Online Payment Services (see official communication by Microsoft : https://community.dynamics.com/gp/b/dynamicsgp/archive/2017/11/09/discontinuation-of-dynamics-online-payment-services ), but it is still always a little disturbing when a service you counted on gets removed after several years.
I probably got the message too, but wasn’t really spending any thought about it, until I upgraded my TEST bed GP 2016R2 to 2018 in mid-December.. As I was comparing from the DYNAMICS.SET launch file, which modules I was missing (21 instead of 28), I tried to figure out where my modules where gone..
Using the nifty “Compare” plugin to my trusty Notepad++ editor, I pulled in the 2 launch file from GP 2016 & 2018.. The first ones were obviously missing ISV products, which I quickly looked up to find if there was any 2018 version yet available.. Out of a few add-ons we use in GP, only GP PowerTools (GPPT) & the eOne Solutions products are currently available with builds for 2018 to download.
And yes, I confirmed that GP Online Payment Services is no longer installed (and not available anymore) for 2018. Which means that if you relied on this for accepting credit card payments in GP, you’ll have to turn to something else (ISV products) to replace that.
The reality of changes in life, not necessarily for the best (like abandoning the Business Portal / SharePoint tandem)..
Until next post, have fun with your GP,
