Increase Productivity and Save Time

Sage Payments is seamlessly integrated with Sage 50cloud, Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50cloud Payroll, saving you time, so you can focus on running your business.

  • Reduce manual processes - payees and payments are submitted to the Sage Payments service directly from your software, so you don't have to manually re-enter any details into your bank, or export and re-import payment files
  • Sage Payments will pre-populate your payment instructions automatically, eliminating re-keying of data, reducing mistakes and saving you time
  • Automatic reconciliation - easily check which payments have been made and which are awaiting authorisation. As the service is integrated with your desktop product, you can always be sure that payments submitted will match with your bookkeeping entry
  • Automatic calculation of exchange rate gains or losses - Sage Payments will update Sage Accounts with the correct exchange rate if it has changed between the time you requested the payment and it leaving your account. You don't have to make any adjustments in Sage Accounts - you do have to tell the program to post these revaluations once these are posted back from Sage Payments
  • Access anywhere - view payments information on your mobile or tablet device

Take Control of your Payments

  • Future dated payments - create efficiency through control of your payments by setting them for the date they are due (you can't future date international transactions)
  • Real-time updates - receive updates about the progress of your payments in real time. With information at your fingertips and reminders sent to you, there is no need to log into your own banking services to check the progress of your payments
  • Flag any inaccuracies - ability to query a payment and add notes to be viewed by your other account users before authorisation
