Accept payments online

With Sage it's easy to accept and receive payments from banks or online payment solutions.

What is an online payment solution?

An online payment solution allows you to make payments to and from your business, saving you time and helping you get paid faster. Sage is compatible with online payment solutions, such as Stripe, PayPal and GoCardless. These services link directly into your Sage software, allowing you to accept several different types of payment with ease.

Accepting card payments

Staying on track with card payments has never been simpler. Sage software links directly to  Stripe and PayPal to accept credit card, debit card and other payments directly, saving you valuable time.


Accepting direct debit payments

Sage software makes accepting payments online easy. With GoCardless, you can accept pre-authorised and direct debit payments as soon as they are due.
