We utilize Sage Pay for credit card processing within Sage 50 and for processing orders through our website. Bottom line, it is the simplest way to integrate credit card processing within Sage. Prior to implementing Sage Pay we used another credit card processing firm which worked fine, except, it required manual entry of all transactions to Sage 50. This was a constant source of friction between sales and accounting as there were frequent errors posting payments. Sage Pay eliminates this issue for the most part. There remain times when orders placed on our website aren't posted properly as these do not post automatically, but for orders processed within Sage 50, the process is seamless. Sage Pay offers Trustwave protection and auditing of our website as part of the program to maintain PCI compliance. There are marginally less expensive payment processors on the market, but if your company is using a Sage accounting solution, there is no simpler way to process cards, and this makes the difference for us.
- Simple. If you use a Sage accounting product the integration is seamless.
- PCI compliant. PCI compliance is assured through the provided Trustwave audit.
- Secure. Keeps all card numbers remotely, none stored locally where they could be exposed by a hack or dishonest employee.
- Robust. API for integrating into multiple web platforms and extensive reporting capabilities through the secure web portal.
- Ideally, the web API would offer the ability to integrate more closely with the onsite Sage software. Payment for web orders must still be posted manually.
- Improved reporting from with Sage accounting software rather than requiring a separate login.
- Adding automated reporting of transactions. The ability to email summary reports of transactions would assist in reconciling payment to orders where the processing is done outside the accounting software.

Sage Pay is best suited when used in conjunction with a Sage accounting program. The integration between the two pieces of software completes the value proposition. If your company is not using a Sage accounting product, there may be other payment processing systems that are better suited to your needs.

Sage Pay makes everything easy. It already has your clients' information due to using Sage Contractor 100. All that I need to pull up any unpaid invoices is the client number. From there I can select which invoices and how much. It keeps all your client mailing information. All that is needed is the credit card number, which the Sage exchange vault has the capability to save in a safe way. Then you can use the same credit card. Moving from an outside company to Sage has saved me a lot of time. With a different company I was required to type in all the client information and then after the credit card went through had to post it as a deposit to Sage. Sage posts directly to the deposit account. There are no extra steps. All around moving to Sage has saved time and money in numerous ways.
- Sage is able to access programs and saves time by copying over client information.
- Sage posts payments directly to your cash accounts which means you don't have to waste time with deposits.
- Sage is quick and there is no way of human error or charging a credit card twice.
- When you are reversing a credit card it just deducts from your total batch for the day. Instead of showing a separate charge out of the account. That can cause confusion if someone else is doing your bank reconciliation.
- It would be nice is Sage Pay could copy over client emails as well as the address and other information so that you can send that email confirmation of charge without having to go back to pull it up.
- If Sage could post it as a total deposit instead of each individual charge for the day that would also save time with bank reconciliation.

Sage saved money with credit card charges. It also saved money with the time spent on processing the credit card charges. With my prior deposit, someone had to log into an account. They would then charge all the cards. Then go to the program we use. Post the payments. Process a deposit. This took a lot of time. And the not having a total deposit in bank reconciliation outweighed the time it took to process on Sage Pay. Both my part-time gals in the office and myself have said we are so glad we made the switch.

I use Sage to process all credit card sales for our company. It is easy to use and was easy to set up. The reports are easily accessible. When you have a question or an issue, you can reach an associate quickly. They are very professional and know their business. It plays well with all the Sage 50 software.
- The history contained in the reports is perfect.
- It's very easy to issue credit to a transaction.
- In 4 years I have not experienced an issue.
- I would like for Sage Pay to automatically merge payment information into the Sage 50 Accounting software. Today the accounting manager must credit the sale to the customer account.
