"This latest version of Sage Payment Center extends the benefits of embedding payments within an accounting system to help small and medium businesses get paid faster, simplify their business operations, and ultimately make smarter decisions," said Paul Bridgewater, CEO of Sage Payment Solutions. "With Sage Payment Center, businesses can choose how they want to process a payment, easily spot accounts receivable trends, make payment acceptance part of their existing workflow, easily make automatic deposits, and much more."

To summarize, Sage Payment Center allows small and medium businesses to:

  • Apply for, activate and use credit and debit card payment acceptance embedded into Sage 50 or Sage 100.
  • Accept payments against an invoice and process a credit card payment using a PCI-secure point-of-sale (POS) interface that posts into Sage 50 or Sage 100 in real time.
  • Gain "cash-flow confidence" by knowing who is paying and when they've paid and seeing credit card and other payment types in real time.
  • Make more informed business decisions by viewing payment trends and gaining a better understanding of business direction and health.

Future Sage Payment Center releases will be embedded into other Sage products, such as Sage One, plus expand functionality to give small and medium businesses more payment options and greater insights into business performance.

Sage Payment Center is currently available for Sage 50 customers on current support plans and any Sage 100 customers in the U.S. who are using Sage 50c, Sage 50 2016, Sage 100c or Sage 100 version 2016.1.
