Sage Payment Virtual TerminalBusinesses who offer more flexible payment options are the businesses who succeed in today's cash strapped economy. The Sage Payment Virtual Terminal is a web interface that allows customers to easily manage and process credit card payment transactions.  You can use this payment service as a stand alone, a mobile payment application on your cell phone or as an integrated extension of your Sage ERP system. Sage Payment Solutions with Virtual Terminal helps customers keep their competitive edge making it easy to collect money from their customers.

The Sage Virtual Terminal is a web interface that processes payment transactions when credit card information is manually key entered into the browser. A secure connection is made to transfer card information from the Sage Virtual Terminal to the Sage Gateway for authorization. Virtual terminals can be accessed 24/7 with an internet connection and a web browser. 

With a virtual terminal, merchants have the flexibility to accept debit and credit card payments virtually, that is, without having to buy a point-of-sale swipe terminal. This can be useful for merchants that don't take customer payments in person or if payments are web based, mailed, phoned, or faxed in. Many businesses that do accept payments in person still process through a virtual terminal to avoid the cost of a card swipe terminal and also to allow for back office processing.

Increase your customer's satisfaction by offering them a convenient time saving payment option through the Sage Virtual Terminal. With recurring payments you can automatically charge your customers a fixed amount of money on a schedule that works for you and for them. The exact payment is made directly to your merchant account on time, every time.

Sage Payment Virtual Terminal:  7 Reasons to Get Started

  1. Easy to set up and use
  2. Reduces postage, paper, labor expenses, and bank fees
  3. Tracks card expiration dates to avoid interrupted payments due to expired data
  4. Free 24/7 Online Reporting
  5. Recurring Payments
  6. Lowers accounts receivable and collection costs
  7. Online Shopping Carts

Online shopping carts assist with purchases made over the web. Having a shopping cart on your website will allow customers to add items, as they shop, to their virtual shopping cart while it keeps a running total of all items in the cart. When the customer is ready to "check out," the shopping cart will total the items, shipping, and tax automatically. This helps customers feel more comfortable with the purchase process.

Marketing used to be easier...but now outbound marketing (cold calling) isn't so easy, especially to accounting software prospects.  Inbound Marketing isn't easy either but we have found that in today's marketplace people want to perform an online search and find what they are looking for on demand, immediately.  We have subscribed to the HubSpot Website Content Management System (CMS) technology because we feel it is an important component to engage with our customers. Our goal in writing this blog is to inform our current and future Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 customers of this technology.  We want our customers to take advantage of HubSpot's Content Management System because it measures the effectiveness of web advertising, email campaigns and search engine optimization.  HubSpot integrates with your Sage CRM system to offer closed loop reporting.  At Accounting Systems Consulting Group our skilled consultants are trained to integrate this data into our ERP offerings for a complete solution to show customers how to measure the ROI that they seek from their customer relationship management and ERP systems.
One of our first key initiatives as a HubSpot user was to research the popularity of Sage Software's third party enhancements.  It was interesting to learn how often the most popular Sage third party enhancements are searched in the major search engines each month.  Please see below for more information about the top ten Sage MAS 90 and 200 enhancements we researched using HubSpot.
Please take our interactive YouTube Quiz below to learn exactly how many times the first six enhancements are searched according to HubSpot.

Are you a Sage MAS 90 or 200 user looking to accept credit cards?

Sage Payment SolutionsToday’s  electronic payment options allow business to accept and disburse funds as needed without mailing checks and depositing funds at the bank.  Why is this important to a business?  Because vendors and customers want flexibility in payment methods and they expect the same from their vendors and customers.  Being able to accept credit cards with Sage Payment Solutions speeds up the process of being paid by customers so product can be shipped earlier or the service can be rendered sooner. 

Sage Payment Solutions has the added benefit of being in the Sage software family of businesses and integrates directly into many of Sage’s Enterprise Resource Planning software such as Mas 90 and 200.  However, a customer of Sage Payment Solutions is not required to use a Sage ERP package.

With Sage Virtual Terminal, merchants can directly interact and process transactions.  This secure website is the merchant’s gateway to processing and reporting credit and/or debit card transactions.  In addition, Sage Payment Solutions has the added functionality of converting paper checks into ACH deposits into your bank account.  With Sage Payment Solutions armed with these options, a business is flexible and accommodating to how a customer wishes to make payment.
