Updates and site news:
From Silkysteps:
Protx to become Sagepay.
Sage, a brand name perhaps more familiarly associated with their accounting software package, purchased Protx some time ago.
Moves are now underway to bring all things protx under the one roof.
Having made the necessary chages to our store payment urls - thank you OMS :), we will be updating the Protx images on site to reflect the change in company ownership and logo.
