Overall Satisfaction with Sage Pay

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.
  • By simplifying payment processing and automatically posting payments to their related transactions within our Sage accounting product, it has eliminated a source of friction between sales and accounting.
  • Eliminates clerical errors in recording paymens.
  • Eliminates one step in the payment reconciliation process by automatically posting payments to their respective transactions.
  • Insures PCI compliance with scheduled monitoring. No need for a separate product.
  • PNC
Sage Pay is the best choice when using Sage accounting software due to the integration. If not using Sage software there are other equally valid options in the marketplace.
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.
